Mirror backup not deleting files

Post by opulent »

I have an external drive setup as a mirror backup and I have remove deleted files' checked but it doesn't delete anything. So my back up drive is just getting fuller and fuller. I need it to mirror and delete the files. How do I fix it?

In Backup Properties->Mirror page, please make sure the "Remove excluded or deleted files from backup" option is selected.
If that is true and the files are still not deleted, please send us the complete backup log to support[at]backup4all[dot]com, to see what the problem is.
