how to set hyper backup retention policy

Unread post by chris_s » Sun Sep 09, 2018 3:07 pm

Hello,

I'm using hyper backup to backup some volumes to amazon S3. For some reason I can't find the options to set how many versions of files to keep, or differential/incremental or the other typical backup options things
Can anyone point me in the right direction?


thanks!

I don't appear to have a rotation tab
I'm pretty sure I've got hyperbackup updated to current version

Do I only have the option for adjusting the rotation tab when creating a new job?

Hi,
to get the rotation tab, you need to select a backup option that allows versioning. Probably you selected a single version task

Best regards,
DS-218+ (10GB) | DSM 6.2-23739-2 | 1 x WD20EFRX (Basic-btrfs) (Hyper backup vault, DS, Docker, Tvheadend)
DS-916+ (8GB) | DSM 6.2-23739-2 | 2 x WD40EFRX (RAID1-btrfs) | 2 x WD10EFRX (RAID1-btrfs) (AS, Calendar, Chat, CMS, Docker, Hyper backup, PS, Snapshot Replication, SVN, VS, WS, Webdav)
  • Startech S3510SMU33 | WD20EFRX (ext-4)
DS-213J | DSM 6.2-23739 | 1 x WD20EFRX (Basic-ext4) (Hyper backup vault)
DS-209 | DSM 6.2-23739-2

Corruption wears infinite disguises.
