Differential depnedent on Incremental?
Hello all, I'm very new to BE, and just recently installed BE2014 to test as a backup solution for my company. I have setup the following schedule, but seem to be having problems with my differential backups being dependent on my incrementals.
Full backup every 6 months, keep 1 year > Daily Incremental, keep 5 weeks > Monthly Differential, keep 27 weeks.
The problem I'm seeing after the monthly differential was created is that the incrementals before it are not able to expire, because the differential is dependent on them. It was my understanding that a differential was "All data that has changed since the last Full Backup" so why is it saying its dependent on the incremental backups before it. Am I doing something wrong? Does my schedule make no sense at all? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
