We recently installed backup exec 10d and are using it to backup to a snap drive on our network.
We set up backup to disk folders and a daily backup job using this document form Symantec:
Everything is working fine except that we are now about to run out of room on the snap drive. We don't want to manually go in and delete files every time this happens. How can we set up the backup to delete the oldest backup when it is about to run out of room on the snap disk?
Currently we have a backup to disk folder created and a daily backup job that backus up to that backup to disk folder every night at 7:00.
I did notice that I could set a disk space reserve in the properties of the backup to disk folder, but it says once that limit is reached the system will stop accepting backup jobs. Obviously this is not what we are looking for. we want it to delete 1 or 2 of the oldest backups when this happens.
