Acronis not deleting old version chains, but logs say it is!
I have an incremental backup job that was originally configured to store no more than 4 version chains, but I changed that to 2 version chains to save on disk space. I let the job continue to run for a week and then saw in the activity that it freed up ~600GB. However, my disk didn't have any more space.
I looked in the path for the backups and it still had 4 version chains. I manually deleted the two oldest ones, ran a verification job (successful) and then waited another week. Once again, the activity showed the deletion of the oldest version chain, but no change in disk space.
I then checked the ti_demon log for that job and saw that it was successfully deleting the oldest version, but nothing actually happens on the disk. It's not deleting anything.
I have two other backup jobs that have no problem managing the proper number of versions and cleaning up after themselves. "Do not delete the first version of the backup" is unchecked. Anything else to check here?
