What determines disk image expiration

I just installed a new master server that has 40TB of disk space. I noticed that after the fulls ran this past weekend the previous fulls performed were removed. What determines what is left on disk? I assumed that the high/low watermark did, but it seems that once a new full is performed it expires the previous full. Is that how it works, or is there something that can be changed to retain the backups to disk longer?

  • So basic disk, if you use staging, is capacity managed and here your high / low watermarks come into play

    However, if images expire they will be removed

    So if the retention of your full backups is 1 week they will be removed after 1 week whether the disk is full or not

    Hope this helps
