limiting the amoutn of backup files on the drive

Post by lbennett » Tue Feb 02, 2010 10:51 pm

If I go to backup>type>limit to 7 days worth of backups, how does this work? on day 8 will it write over day 1's backup file? I hope it does, that is what we are trying for.

Hi,

What is the backup type you use?
Do you use the "Merge backups" option?

We are doing a full backup, no merge.

Hi,

Yes, that is how it works: in the 8th day, it overwrites the 1st backup.
