Modifying the Properties of a Backup Image

Modifying the Properties of a Backup Image

This operation allows you to check the protected objects of a backup image and modify its retention policy.


A backup image has been generated in the system.


Changing the retention policy of a backup image does not change the global retention policy of the backup plan. This change is effective only for this backup image.


  1. Choose Data Protection > CloudBackup > Backup and Restoration > Backup Image and Restoration.
  2. Select the desired backup image and click Properties.

    The Properties of Backup Image dialog box is displayed.

  3. Set the retention policy for the backup image, which can be:

    • Permanent
    • Retained Until

      The system retains the backup image till a fixed time, and automatically deletes the image after this time.

    • Retained For

      The system retains the backup image for the specified period of time. When the lifespan of the backup image exceeds this period, the system automatically deletes the image.

  4. In the Protected Object area, you can check the information about the protected LUN or LUN consistency group.
  5. Click OK.

    The Execution Result dialog box is displayed.


    If you do not modify the properties of the backup image, the Execution Result dialog box will not be displayed. The Properties of Backup Image dialog box is closed after you click OK.

  6. Click Close.
