SQL 7.0 Beta does not delete dumps that are older than the specified amount of time on the maintenence wizard.  It continues to fill the hard drive.  Anybody have a clue if this is a bug?

if your drop your DB dump (eg by specifyying an expiry date), it removes it from the catalog but does not actually delete the file. THis has to be done manually, for some reason this happens even with 6.5, I believe it is a bug that has been overlooked.
