swap out backup media once a week.....

Post by rharvey » Wed Apr 10, 2019 1:41 am

swap out backup media once a week, it confuses the delete the oldest backup process and generates a not found error.
is there a way I can fix the not found error?

thanks

Not really much you can do. It tries to delete an old backup that is not found.

no way to tell it to use the date and delete the oldest backup on the drive?
instead of the file name?

It will strictly follow the history list. This is important, especially with incremental backups.
