Frequently asked questions when archiving backups to cloud

What's the best retention time for my archived backups?

Backup archive feature is designed for long-term retention purpose of your backup data, you should take cloud object storage capacity and the archive data growth into consideration to decide the best retention time. If there're any laws or regulations to comply with, please follow the instructions of the laws or regulations to setup the retention time of archived backups.

What's the best time schedule of a Backup Archive job?
