12.5 Retention settings for large VHDX file backups that sync offsite?
We want to backup a set of VHDX files and then sync the .TIBX files with a cloud account. The OS and DATA VHDX files total about 250GB. We created a custom backup plan and SPLIT the files into max 15GB since the cloud sync max file size is 20GB. We set the How Long to Keep at 1 Week and 1 Day hoping that there would be minor changes each day and it would not sync all new 15GB TIBX files each day. We are getting new file time/date stamps each day so the sync sees them as new files. What would be the best way to accomplish this? The actual data in the 2012R2 VM changes only a small amount each day. Thanks!
