    The application backup schedule determines both the retention and the volume pool used

    I would suggest using Daily, Weekly and Monthly policies and set your volume pool and retention period on the application backup schedule and not the automatic schedule

    This is due to the fact that you automatic schedule kiskc off what is effectively a user backup which then uses the application schedule to determine everything else

    This crops up a lot with SQL backups which also need a policy for each retention period

    Hope this helps
