How To Configure Database Maintenance Plan to only Backup Last 7 days on SQL 2012
Posted on 2013-11-28
Basically, as the title says, I want to configure my plan to only backup the database every night for the last 7 nights. anything older than that should be deleted away.
The reason why is space. The space on my HD is being eaten away rapidly.
Am I going to have to create a custom SSIS package or is there some way to configure the maintenance plan to do it? Gotta believe there is and that Microsoft, even though often befuddling in their choices, has given me that option.
