This page is not displayed if the new scheduler is enabled.
After each job run, NAKIVO Backup & Replication creates a recovery point for each item in the Backup Repository. A recovery point represents the backed up Microsoft 365 account or mailboxes as of a particular moment in time and allows you to recover individual objects or the entire account from the Backup Repository. You can specify how many recovery points should be preserved in the Backup Repository using the Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) backup rotation scheme. Use the following options:
Keep X last recovery points: Keeps the specified number of last recovery points for each item in the job.
Keep one recovery point per day for X days: Keeps one last recovery point per day for the specified number of days.
Keep one recovery point per week for X weeks: Keeps the last available backup of every week for the specified number of weeks.
Keep one recovery point per month for X months: Keeps the last available backup of every month for the specified number of months.
Keep one recovery point per year for X years: Keeps the last available backup of every year for the specified number of years.
