Where is the Retention Tab?

I use ShadowProtect Desktop 4 to back up the C drive in Windows XP.   It creates a new full and incremental backup every time it runs.   How do I set it to keep only the most recent backup sets and delete older ones?   I cannot find the Retention tab anywhere to modify this setting.

How often are you running the backup? The retention tab should only show for weekly or monthly backups:

I run the full backup weekly, but the incremental backup seems to run very frequently during the day.   I want it to overwrite the weekly as well as the incremental backups so the hard drive does not fill up.   What is image manager?   Is this a separate program?

I'm no ShadowProtect expert but yes, Image Manager is a separte 'program' consisting of a Windows Service and a client.

ImageManager automatically consolidates incremental backup image files into daily, weekly, and monthly incremental images

I found that by increasing the interval between incremental backups, the number per day is reduced.   I will see if the program overwrites the older backups.
