  1. Is there a way to automatically delete older backup sets….it just fills up my backup drive.

    1. Hi Walter,

      Unfortunately, currently there isn’t an automatic way to delete backups so we need to delete backup files manually. I know it’s not very comfortable, so we’re currently working on automatic retention policy feature, hope it will be available in the next app release!

      Yes, it is possible in the new version of our app! Retention policy feature allows to set a number of backups to keep on a backup destination. When the count of backups exceeds this number the app deletes the oldest backup freeing up space on your backup destinations.
      You can download the new app here:

      Please let me know if you need any help or if you need any further assistance!
