This article describes how to force rollup to occur on an agent machine.
When protecting your data using AppAssure 5, backup snapshots are taken frequently, and are saved to the repository specified by the Core. To conserve storage resources over time, this data can be rolled up to an incrementally less granular series of recovery points.
Rollup occurs as an internal nightly maintenance procedure, during which the defined retention policy is enforced by collapsing and eliminating dated recovery points. You can also force rollup manually by accessing the retention policy, as described below.
