    1. If I have 7 days checked for daily backups with retention: 3, is it saving 3 of those selected days or 21 in total?
    2. If I change the retention from 3 to 1, will the 2 older extras be removed automatically?

    Hello,

    The video linked in the previous response is helpful.

    In this scenario, the system will retain the three most recent daily backups, and backups will generate all seven days.

    The older two backups are removed on the next backup generation.

    Thank you.
