    TI Echo Worstation 8115 with Backup Server. Trying to manage a backup server from Management Console. Connected to the server. Pick a task

    reading from the program menus:

    Manage Backup Arhives
    View all backup archives that reside on the Acronis Backup Server ; merge and delete selected ones


    Well, I can't actually do that. I can't see any delete button and right click doesn't bring any delete commands. It can't be that menus lie, can it?

    Acronis get your act together. Either fix the features or fix the caption.

    C'mon Acronis. Is one able to delete the selected backups from the Backup Server or not. Can you answer a simple question or is it too embarassing that your menus lie?

    Hello versus,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Remote Workstation Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for delayed response.

    Please notice that archive deletion on Acronis Backup Server happens as part of consolidation process. As explained in chapter 4.5.6 "Managing Archives" of Acronis True Image Echo Workstation User's Guide: "You can ... consolidate any backup (except for the oldest one in the archive) with the preceding backup file. This operation deletes the preceding backup and sets concatenation between the backup being consolidated and the backup before the deleted one. Thus, the archive integrity will not be affected, in spite of the fact that one backup will be deleted. Data recovery from any of the remaining backups will be possible."

    Thank you.
