retention is not changing when we start manual backup for subclient

Badge +1

we are trying to start a backup for a subclient with editing the advance option under media tab and changing retention for primary job to different retention.


backup is completed but it shows us the retention of the storage policy only not the one we have changed it.

how to make backup use retention we set in manual backup advance option and not using the retention form storage policy.

Hello @CV_USER

Can you verify if you are setting the retention on the desired Copy? Maybe it is being applies but the wrong copy was selected.



Thank you,

We selected like for 2 days and select copies and selected the primary copy to change the retention.

it did not take the retention of 2 days, instead it took from 30 days from storage pollicy.
