Purging Backup Images
I'm out of space on my 120GB backup drive for the file backups and the
device backups. I have deleted folders and files on the backup device, but
there isn't any documentation on what and where to delete. What I guessed
at was so wrong one time that I had to format the disk and start over.
Isn't there a directory in the software somewhere where you can selectively
purge old backups? Or, is their idea that you just format and start over?

John

Re: Purging Backup Images
I also have an external USB drive for backup. The backed up files & folders
are in (for me) K:\ComputerName\Backup Set date\Backup Files date\Backup
files No.\etc. There will be a series of these folders. Periodically
(once a month or so) I go in and manually delete the oldest Backup Set(s) to
maintain ample freeboard on the drive. It has not been a problem.
