Spec request 4 latest full backups (no Incremental)

Hi Gents

The clients' technical request in specification is to provide 4 latest full backups on quaterly basis (every four months). No Incremental backups in between. So 4 latest full backups must be available.

Problem

We are struggling to find how to do that with SSR 2013. The only way to create a quaterly schedule is to make an Intependant Backup in Jobs and Tasks and schedule it for every four months' backup schedule. Could You explain how to keep these latest 4 full backup (like Recovery Points)? Is there an Option to make such the task running in this way? Right now, the created Full backup is overwritten by the next "quaterly" full backup instance.

thank You in advance

When creating the backup job,

When creating the backup job, there should be the quaterly option for the base backup. Additionally you have to select the option to keep the last 5 backup sets. This shoud make it.

If you have to retain 4 sets

If you have to retain 4 sets then set "Recovery points" option under backup job to 4
