Old backups are not deleted

Post by msolutions » Thu Jun 13, 2019 10:33 am

Good Morning,
sorry for my english, is not my mother language.
i'm running a complete backup everyday on a machine, and as a destination i'm using a dedicated share from a server.
The backup works great but it does not delete file older than tha last 7, as i set in the job.
I didn't find any entry In the log file about trying to delete previous backups...
Can you help me figure out what's wrong?
Thanks for the help,

Paolo

Do you have several destinations or only one?

If you look at the history tab with your task selected: how many history items do you see?

Hi!
I see 6 backup in the history tab, 1 dated january (the first backup) and 5 on random dates.
I have attached an image of the history tab.
Thanks again for the help,

Paolo

Everything looks right to me... Try changing the log file to Verbose. This will log absolutely ANY operation the program does (and doesn't). You will have A LOT of information and the backup will be slower than ever, but you may find the cause there. Don't forget to turn the log settings back to Normal after you try this.

Thanks Cobian for the help!
I sent you a PM with the log.
I have not seen any entry regarding the deletion of the old backups...
Can you take a look and help me?
thanks again!

Paolo
