Backup scheme is not deleting old backups

Thread needs solution

Using a custom incremental scheme, see attached, with it set to storing no more than 3 recent version chains it is not deleting the old ones after it goes above 3. Is there something in the settings that I need to switch?

Kevin, welcome to these public User Forums.

You backup scheme settings should allow automatic cleanup to run but any deletions would only occur after a 4th Full backup file has been created successfully, such that you always keep the most recent 3 version chains.
