This should be a much easier question.
I have tried on a number of occasions to use Automatic Cleanup in association with writing full backups of selected groups of files. I've used both longevity settings and number of copies of settings.
So far, I have not been successful in getting Acronis 2016 to reach the number of volumes or the dates and then to keep dropping the old ones out of the stack. Should I be able to do that? Is there some obvious trick to setting it up?
The way I found out about this is that I was writing about 5 gigs of folders to an internal drive. Eventually the drive filled up and I couldn't write any more backups. I was astounded to see lots and lots of backups where I had requested either 5 total or 5 weeks worth of backups.
Seems like I'm not understanding something.
