Backup Cleanup Bug RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • All of my client backups were on two 1 Tb Spanned volumes for a total of 2Tb.  After about a year the free space was getting low (<20 Gb).  I removed old/replaced PCs from the client list and hoped that the automatic cleanup would give me more free space. It did but the amount was minimal and free space kept going down.

    In desperation, I shrank the system disk (1Tb) by 500 Gb and then added the now free 500 Gb to the spanned volume.  I then manually ran the cleanup task from task scheduler.  Voila!  Now there's over a 1Tb free on the spanned volume.  It appears that when free space gets low, cleanup doesn't work!  User beware.
