    Im using Rollback RX Pro 7.2.1 and want to ensure a safe back up every day.
    At the same time I want to automatically delete backups after five days. If the system is working 5 days after a backup its pretty safe to assume i dont need it anymore, hence the delete.

    If i go away on a business trip, which might be up to two weeks, from my understanding of the delete system, everything would be deleted by the time I get back - in fact, five days after i left.
    How do i ensure backups will remain on my system and wont be deleted after five days. I would like to see the last three backups remain at all times with the others deleted daily. Thx

    The number of days to retain snapshots is easily changed in the RB settings, so before you go on an extended trip just change your setting of 5 days to the length of your trip + 3 days.

    Before your trip, lock your snapshots. The automatic "delete" only removes the unlocked snapshots.
