Hello people.

I am seeing that Proxmox misses a very important features about backup retention.

An example could be:

- Last week,  N backup daily
- Last month, N backup weekly
- Last year,  N backup monthly

So, with a total of 9 backups, I could have:

- The last 3 daily backups
- The last 3 weekly backups
- The last 3 montly backups

Another nice feature could be a "pool" selection of VM's to backup, so adding a VM in the pool will insert the VM in the backup schedule.

Also the machine name in the backup file will be useful (i have already read about it in the mailing list).

Thanks, Fabrizio
