Microsoft SQL Management Studio

I am backing up an SQL database with an SQL Management Studio 2005 Maintenance plan. I can't figure out how to configure it so that it doesn't fill up my backup folder and consequently my disk. I have to manually go in and delete old backups. Is there a retention setting or overwrite option that I am missing?

Jim - understood.

Look into the "Define Maintenance Clean Up" page of the task. You can choose a certain file type and how long to keep files.
