Hi guys,

I am having to regularly mass delete snapshots as the volume space is used up,  I have searched several forums but not found how to enable auto deletion of snapshots based upon percentage of volume space left. However, what would be best if I could enable an option to automatically delete snapshots based on a retention policy, say one month.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks , Ben
