    Configured policies are marked with a green dot. Undefined policies are marked with a red dot.

  3. Select the number of snapshots you want to keep.

  4. Select the day, hour, and minute when the snapshot should be taken.

  5. If you want to create additional snapshots with different frequencies, for example, both monthly and daily snapshots, repeat steps 2 through 4.
