    Hi,
    an strange problem.
    Acronis True Image Backup & Recovery has a new function - Backupdepot
    with the possibility to delete old files.
    We change every week disk as backup target.
    After a while, we get the message - target full. So we find out, that after every change, the old file moves in a new depot, which ist NOT Member in the deleting job. these files were never automatic deleted.

    Hints ?

    PS. The Exchange Version does it correctly !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder if the problem is the disk ID signature isn't matching the one attached to the repository?

    Does it work as planned if you don't swap the disks?

    Hello Psionic,

    Thank you for using Acronis Corporate Products

    I assume that the backup files were consolidated, and the consolidated backup files took space on your hard drive.

    If you delete a backup that is a base of an incremental or differential backup, the program will consolidate the two backups. For example, you delete a full backup but retain the next incremental one. The backups will be combined into a single full backup which will be dated the incremental backup date. When you delete an incremental or differential backup from the middle of the chain, the resulting backup type will be incremental.

    Please be aware that consolidation is just a method of deletion but not an alternative to deletion. The resulting backup will not contain data that was present in the deleted backup and was absent from the retained incremental or differential backup.

    Thank you.
