Hello. I’m setting up a new system for a client. I need to have at least 30 days of backups on hand at any given time. What’s the best way to achieve this? I have Administrator profiles setup for each of my servers. Quota: Unlimited Period: Unlimited Max Backups in Location: Unlimited Max Backups in Archive: 31 With that setup, I believe that Acronis will make one full backup on the first day and then make an incremental each day for the next 30 days. What happens on the 32nd day of backups? I probably need to schedule automatic consolidation every month, or 30 days? Does the consolidation ever shrink the image files? For example with simple numbers so it’s not confusing. You take a full backup that is 50gb. You remove 20gb of data from that system. You take an incremental backup, which would be trivial in size. When you consolidate your full backup and the one incremental, do you end up consuming 30gb of disk space on your backup server? I just want the past 31 days available, at all times, with zero manual intervention.
