- Backup and Retention - Matrix
- Azure Backup has a limit of 9999 recovery points, also known as backup copies or snapshots, per protected instance. A protected instance is a computer, server (physical or virtual), or workload configured to back up data to Azure. For example, if you create a recovery point each day, then you can retain recovery points for 27 years before you run out. If you take a monthly recovery point, you can retain recovery points for 833 years before you run out. The Backup service does not set an expiration time limit on a recovery point.
