Grooming Question

Recommended Posts

We run three backup sets on our database regularly.


Weekly = Full

Daily = Differential

Hourly = logs


In regards to grooming I would like to keep 3 weeks worth of data before backups begin to be groomed out of the disk used for storage. Weekly and Daily are configurable without issue, although when it comes to hourly that would mean 360 backups before the groom takes effect. The Backup set properties only allow a max entry of 99, is their anyway to circumvent this option so that I can make the 360 before groom rule possible?



Thanks in Advance

With retrospect 7.0.301 could create an automate grooming script and schedule it to run automatically every 3 weeks.
