Description: This document briefly explains why a user may see generation based savesets expiring even though they have increased the number of generations to keep.
The number of generations to keep ("Discard after NN Full Backups" in Advanced Options of a backup job) has been increased but the savesets created using the original value are expiring as per the original value.
When a saveset is created the generation information is written into the database. Changing the generations to keep value will only affect new savesets.
There are two ways to workaround this:
1. Perform a data copy of the savesets. The new savesets will inherit the new generation value.
2. Manually change the generation value by modifying the savesets in Media Management.
