Re: Cleanup job removed files that are more recent than specified

Hi, Your explanation seems to correctly describe what happened. However, I wouldn't call partial backups (differential/incremental) which are missing the previous ones they depend on as 'useless'. Even though they do contain only partial information (only some of the recently modified/added files) t...

Cleanup job removed files that are more recent than specified

I have set up a cleanup job that removes all backup files older than 3 weeks - except for full backups. It is expected to remove all incremental and differential backups older than 3 weeks. In the few times that I have checked it during the last few months, the state of the backup directory was as e...

I installed the new version 4.6.251 and had the same issues. The installer still failed to close the running process backup4all.exe. No backups or any other actions were running at that time. Note that all backups have as target an external USB HDD which is currently connected. I have created a file...

Cleanup job reports files deleted OK and removes them from catalog even though external HDD is not connected

I am currently running Backup4All Professional - version 4.5 Build 243 - on Vista 32-bit SP2. I have been running the B4A software since last summer. I am backing up my files to an external hard drive. I have setup two Cleanup jobs to remove a) all files older than 8 weeks and b) all non-full backup...
