Got a phonecall from a client today, which couldn't save his word document on drive of backup...
Went to him to find out that Cobian 8 backuped 2 months of daily backup instead of only 7 copies....
Installed Cobian 7 instead, But it did not allowed to choose how many copies of backup to do (# is Grey boxed).
So what I did is create 2 backup sets, 1 daily and 1 weekly...
Any familiarity with this problems ?
Thank you

Look for the cause instead. There *must* be a cause why the program is not deleting old backups.

1) How often are you doing full backups?`
2) What are the permissions of the created backups?
3) Which account is running your service?
