And I am very happy to receive it.

Thanks Emmanuel and well done

Does it have a ‘number if backups to keep’ setting. For rotation purposes.

Or max disk to use before deleting old backups

Very useful on hard disks and a key lacking feature in M$ Win 7 backup. Much moaning on web about this from admins!

Know it must be there somewhere CBU has pretty much everything :slight_smile:

Best wishes


Thanks Emanuel. I don’t think I’ll have time to give this beta release a run. Hopefully this will be trouble free.


Downloading right now…


Hey Mike,

You can use the macro “max_no_revisions” to determine how many versions to retain before recommencing the backup cycle. This macro has been in CBU for ages. (:TNG)

Ewen :slight_smile:

Great stuff Ewen, ta. Found it!
