7 Managing Backups and Recovery : 7.1 Performing a Base Backup for Point-In-Time Recovery

When point-in-time recovery is enabled, the value specified in the Backup Retention field of the Create cluster dialog determines the duration of the point-in-time recovery backup window. For example, if you specify a value of 7, the backup window will be 7 calendar days long. When the backup retention threshold is reached, the oldest base backup is removed, as well as any WAL files required to perform a recovery with that backup.
Point-in-time recovery is enabled on the Details panel of the Clusters tab. If a base backup fails, you can trigger EDB Ark to perform a base backup by disabling point-in-time recovery, and then (after waiting a few minutes) re-enable point-in-time recovery.
