After each job run, NAKIVO Backup & Replication creates a recovery point in the Backup Repository for each VM. A recovery point represents the backed up VM as of a particular moment in time and allows you to recover individual files, application object, or the entire VM from the Backup Repository.

You can specify how many recovery points should be preserved in the Backup Repository using Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) backup rotation scheme. Use the following options:
