  • I have 2 disks of 500gb each for server backup and now I get a warning saying that the backup space is low.How can I delete the older backups?I had setup it to take 2 backups per day and there are backups morethan one month.Will they be automatically deleted when no space will be left?

  • Thomas,
    Unless the total volume of your shares and backup database exceeds the capacity of the backup disk (with a maximum of 2GB) WHS will automatically delete older backups to free up space.

    If the total volume to backup does not fit on the backup disk your only option is the replace it with a larger disk.
