Hi @KateRua 

You could try using the retention level option to bpimagelist. So (assuming you have the default retention level settings where rl=6 for 6 months - try this command:

# bpimagelist -hoursago 4400 -rl 6

4400 hours is approximately 6 months (there would be no need to search back further). If you need the output in more readable format try using the "-L" or "-U" options. If your retention level settings are not standard, then use the bpretlevel command to see what retention level(s) correspond to 6 ,months.

Cheers

You can use the catalog section of the gui to create the output off all backups narrowing the search dates to the dates you need.

The same from the command line but more dificult to work with the output
bpimagelist -d 01/01/2000 -e 12/22/2023  
You can use the -L or -U switches as davidmoline subject and manipulate the output
