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.

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

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 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.
