Azure Backup and how retention policies are executed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had couple of question regarding azure backup

    1. what is Incremental Backup in Azure. --> Is it merge all the incremental backups together with full backup?
    2. And as per retention policies: For example, Daily retention policy - Backups are taken daily(Let's say today) at specific times(let's say at 4:00 PM)stored for specific days(let's say for 7 days). So after 7 days (i.e. on the 8th day)backup taken today at 4 PM will be deleted? and how we will be able to get data of that back up during recovery?
