I had deleted the old backup schedule and recreated a new one but the number of backup copies showing is wrong.  When I click on View Details it is showing the wrong number of backups (top cirlce) but on the main screen it is showing the correct number of backup (bottom circle).  I'd deleted the backup history from the Event Viewer.  Any ideas?

See picture attached.

These details are stored in the backup history in SQL. deleting the files will not remove them from the backup software.

Try using the wbadmin command line to specify how many versions to keep
