Isn't there an easy and automatic way to get rid of old backup sets? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why does not onecare automatically delete old backups and fills up whatever amount of space that is provided. It should not be very complicated to keep monthly full backups and incremental weekly & daily backups.

    I believe TimeMachine on OS X does that.

  • Unfortunately, all maintenance of backup storage has to be done manually. When One Care was first released backup was supported only on CD. Over time more devices such as external drives and NAS were added so my guess is that there will be improvements in backup functionality and features in a future build of One Care.
