delete old backup

Post by rvelic »

Hi! I want to make scheduled full backup everyday in same time, and i want that only last 7 backups stays. So older backups than 7 days should be deleted automatically. I tried to do that but it deleted all backups after 7 days and than make new one. Can you explain me how to do that?

It seems you used the option to Clear backup from Backup Properties->Advanced page.
Please disable that option and go to Backup Properties->Types.
Select the option to limit number of backups at 7.
Also please uncheck the "Merge backups" option.
Press Save and run the backup.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
