Snapshot - Number of copies on the remote destination

For regular Snapshot backups, please consider adding a separate option to keep a certain amount of backups on the remote destination.

    Hi Achim,

    Hope you are doing good today. :slight_smile:

    At the moment, Snapshot do allow to select the total number of copies that needs to be saved in the remote destination when creating new snapshot, ie in the "REMOTE DESTINATION STORAGE LIMIT" option.

    [image pos="0"]

    If the number of snapshot for remote destination is 3, then once 3 snapshots are created in destination, the plugin will overwrite the older snapshot in destination, and will make sure the total number of snapshots in Remote Destination is 3. You could increase that number, so it would allow to keep the desired amount of copies.

    Just to be sure, if you are also looking for a feature to not overwrite the copies in destination, then selecting the "Keep all Snapshots" option as seen in the screenshot, should do the job, however it doesn't help with selecting the number of copies.

    Could I know how you are expecting the feature to work, once the number of copies limit is reached?

    Please do let us know what exact functionality are you looking to achieve, which you think the current settings doesn't allow. So I could bring this into our developers attention too. Have a nice day ahead. :slight_smile:

    Hi Nithin ,
    thanks for your answer. I found the settings you showed me in another installation. My client didn't update the plugin, so i had an older version, that didn't have this feature yet. But i didn't get the fact, he didn't do updates.
    So at the end it was my mistake, but thanks a lot for pointing me in the right direction!
    Case closed :wink:
    Best regards!
