Mon 29 Apr 2019 18:29:40 - Full backup recovery point

Tue 14 May 2019 22:00:10 - Synthetic merge recovery point

Wed 15 May 2019 22:00:09 (d) - Daily recovery point

Thu 16 May 2019 22:00:10 (d) - Daily recovery point

Fri 17 May 2019 22:00:09 (d) - Daily recovery point

As per the design, the recovery points of the daily backups are marked for retention (with letter d in the suffix) on every third day. When the retention count exceeds the set policy, it will be added to the synthetic merge recovery point.

The last 2 recovery points are marked for retention and after the successful backup on 20 May, then the older restore points will be merged to meet your retention policy. The process will continue for successive days.

Refer Basic Retention workflow for more details.

If you want to restore from every daily backup that happens after the full backup, edit the backup job and disable the retention.
