Clean up old backups directly after backup


#1

I’ve defined a backup job which backups approx. 15 databases (size 5…30 GB each), stores them locally and uploads them to ftp destination.
In order to save data storage while backing up I’m using the option
“Backup one DB, send, repeat (as opposite to backup all, then send all)”. This option is important as it deletes the tempory files after each database has been sent to ftp. Great feature so far.

Still the local clean up of old backup files (not the temp files!) happens after all backups have been uploaded.

Is there a way to trigger the clean up of old backups directly after the upload?
This would greatly save data storage in our scenario.

Hi Michael_Remmel,

Sorry, but there is no way to do it. Thank you for the feature request.
