Limit the number of recovery point sets saved for this backup (Recovery point sets only)
Limit the number of recovery points saved for this backup (Independent recovery points only)
Select this option to specify the maximum number of recovery points or recovery point sets that are saved for each drive.
When this limit is reached, each successive recovery point or set is first created and stored. Then, the oldest, previously created recovery point or set is deleted (including all associated incrementals, if applicable) from the same storage location.
Be sure you have enough hard disk space. You want to be able to accommodate the number of recovery points or sets you specify, plus one additional recovery point or set.
If you run out of hard disk space before the number is reached, the recurring recovery point process cannot complete successfully. As a result, a current recovery point or set is not created.
