Backup Strategy

We have Backup Retention defined as follows.
Daily backups : 5 weeks
Weekly Backups : 1 year
Monthly backups :2 years.
Yearly Backup : Infinity.

If understand :
Weekly Backup will backup only the Data that is available on that day (The end of the week).
after 5 weeks, the daily backups images will be expired , and we may have some Data that the Weekly backup did not grab.
Is this Correct ?

if so the same issue might apply for other Retentions (Monthly , Yearly).

Unless if there is an archiving storage , I do not see how you can keep the Data available for any date if resquested for restore.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks
