    I have setup a monthly full image with incrementals occuring every so often.

    Is there some easy way to "delete all tib files older than x". A good time would be when the monthly full runs.....just a simple batch file or is there a better way to handle it?

    Basically I want don't want my hard drive to get completely filled.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    If you have set the creation to the acronis secure zone, based on the size of the zone, all the latest incremental backups and the related initial full backups will remain and older backups will get automatically deleted

    Howdy,

    No expert I, but I believe that there is also another approach...

    Suppoose I create an image called FirstOfMonth.tib and schedule it for (you guessed it, the first day of each month.)

    It will be overwritten (after the new image is created.)

    So that schedule allows me to "automatically delete" any image more than a month old.

    With that idea, I believe I could remove any older images I wished.

    All the best,

    Kenneth
