HP Media Smart Home Server- old Back ups not deleting on only one of 3 WIN 7 PCs RRS feed

  • Question

  • On one of 3 PCs loaded w/WIN 7 Home (the desktop wired into router) the back ups are failing to delete on the Sunday scheduled clean up.  I have the standard 3/3/3 set up and the 2 notebooks appear to be in compliance with the back up plan but the desktop has retained all backups to February 2010.  I have attempted a manual 'clean up' but that fails after about 25%.    I have done multiple reboots of server and attempted the clean up on several occasions with the same result.  Any suggestions?  Thank you.

  • Try using the console function for repairing the backup database.

  • Thank Ken ... I think I had tried that previoulsy but did so again at your suggestion.  The database was repaied and 'clean' .... 

    Notwithstanding the clean up of my primary desktop computer failed even after the repair.
