SSR2013 (and SSSR2012) retention off-site copy

Dear,

I deployed SSR2012 for a customer. 1 recovery point per month, retention 6 months. Configured an offsite copy to a second disk.

All goes well. When the retention period on the BU disk is achived a clean happens as it should do. I notice that the cleaning is also done on the offsite copy disk. Is there a way that I can set a different policy for the offsite copy location? Actually what I woul like to achieve is 6 months retention on the BU disk and only purge content from the offsite disc when it gets full. In this way the BU disk would provide recovery for 6 months, the offsite copy would be long term recovery.

Thanks

There is no such thing as SSR 2012 :-)

Unfortunately this is not possible with the current version of the product - sounds like a nice enhancement though. Offsite copy is just that - it mirrors what you have at your primary backup destination.

Please add this to the ideas section so that it can be considered for future versions of the product:

Chris,

I meant SSR2011, my mistake.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll continue doing a mannual copy every month for long term archiving...

I am trying out SSR2013, it works when backing up my C and D drive. But when I backup my E drive(data drive) the program locks up.  I can copy everything on the E drive to the D drive and SSR2013 will do a backup of the C and D drive with no issues.  Can anyone tell me what is happening?
