SharePoint Configuration Only Backup and Retention

Hi Readers,

Sharing another script in Backup /Retetion category for sharepoint 2010 Farm.

Earlier I shared WSP backup & Retention, its based on same creteria.

Retention period is 60 days….

when the script is run it creates a dynamic folder based on date, create configuration only backup & retain it for 60 days (or the days you define)

Extract the ZIP file from below link & schedule the batch file.

Below will be the result.
