Automatic Deletion of old backups

Postby HHegerhorst » Fri Sep 20, 2019 1:10 pm

I am backing up two source drives (C: and W:) each with a separate .CMD script file, to a large Raid drive Y:. Backups are working fine. Drive C: is backing up to Y:\Images\Drive-C, and Drive W: is backing up to Y:\Images\Drive-W. However, the system is not automatically removing the old backups when Y: gets full. Is it necessary to have a separate backup drive for each source drive? Or do you have another suggestion?

The only automatic handling of files is in simple operations mode.

For traditional mode, you have to handle it, either via the /purge
option or using one of the scripts available to you via the downloads
page for Image for Windows at the website.
