How to Limit Image for Windows File Size

Postby speechfixer » Thu Mar 22, 2012 2:47 pm

I am trying Image for Windows for the first time. I scheduled a full HD image one time per week and a differential image on the other six days to remain current. How do I set up a preference so that I don't run out of disk space? Is there a way to limit total space used for all images or to make the oldest one fall off so a new one may be made. An HD can only hold a limited amount of backups. Many thanks for your help!!

Check the manual on /purge as well as the "File Path Variables", then also
consider the batch files that do things for you at
