In addition I would like know, when I chosoe to limit the number of backup counts(using destination backup as FTP), which backup4all log file has entries on updates about deleting old backup sets.
While testing i found that old backup set was deleted but i couldnt locate entries in log file.

Hi,

We tested Backup4all with hundreds of GB but we also have clients backing up over 1 TB of files using Backup4all.

Please note Backup4all will not back up the system state as it was designed for data files backup.
