Need a utility to remove backups that are not linked to any job

Peter Atkin shared this idea 2 months ago

We recently upgraded from 4 to 5 and are having a complete nightmare in cleaning out the backup directory; looking through the forums, there just seems to be no new way to do this; this seems somewhat of an oversite.

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your feedback. In our latest version of JetBackup v5.3.8, we have implemented a Backup Cleanup and Integrity Check that will remove any files marked for deletion. The default setting will have this process run once every seven days, but you can configure it to occur as low as once a day.

To cleanup backups generated in JetBackup 4, we have a guide in our documentation HERE.

Thank you,

The JetApps Team
