Veeam User Warns About Item-Level Retention in Microsoft 365 Backup (Restore it All Podcast #102)

A Veeam user warns of what he felt is a confusing option in Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365. He says he likes the product, but that the first retention setting mentioned in the documentation (item-level retention) might not do what you think it does. He thinks everyone should use snapshot-level retention, which behaves more traditionally. We also discuss IBM Spectrum Protect (AKA TSM) a little bit, as they also use that product. Our guest is speaking on conditions of anonymity, so we gave him a fake name (Puddleglum) and altered his voice in the recording. (Want to talk about your environment, but don’t want to use your name? We’d love to have you on and we’ll keep you anonymous too!)
