Paragon Drive Backup 9 Server - data rention / culling

I have set up Paragon Drive Backup 9.0 Server on two servers (server1, server2), with the destination device being a Dell RD1000 drive on Server1.  At this moment we have ordered larger disks, but lets assume we are working with 80GB disks.

The software has been installed on both servers and is working properly with my RD1000.  I simply cannot figure out, by either looking in the program or looking through their support, if there are data retention options.  Because the drive is only 80gb, it will hold 2 backups of each server (2 archives, 2 copies each).

Do these options exist, and where can I find them?  If not, is it possible to set a retention policy through scripts (a la Backup Exec)??

Do you use Cyclic Backup feature of this product? It can control the number of images to store. I use it widely and never had problems with filling drives. Find it in Drive Backup - Wizards - Backup utilities.
Setup the image number quota or disk quota and when this quota is exceeded the oldest image will be replaced with new one.
BTW, Drive Backup 10 is much better.

Thank you noxcho.  You pointed me in the right direction with cyclic backup, and though I did not get that successfully set up in Drive backup server 9, it did lead me to discover I was working with a uprade assured version, so I am getting version 10 now.  I will update this as I work with v.10

Let me know if I can help. I beta tested Drive Backup 10 and using it now for my needs as well. Works much better than DB9.
