Automatic cleanup in 2011 DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!
It's a simple thing to do yet 2011 is LESS functional the 2010. Auto cleanup is not working at all now. I have the following settings:
6 differential versions
can't select more then one sub option now, so went with "keep size of backup no more then 200GB". Drive has 292GB of space. Today I login and AGAIN it say disk is full and it will "Shutdown in 600 sec" if I don't decide. The ONLY option I really have at that point is to cancel the backup. Acronis won't let me clean up backups from within and if I use windows to do it, it corrupts the backup.
Drive now has 42GB free. After the last backup, Auto cleanup SHOULD have been triggered because the backup size uses more then 200GB. But it didn't. Instead it waits till the next day (daily backups), decides disk is full and does nothing about it! What was the point in putting in an auto cleanup if it won't do anything. We shouldn't have to resort to 3rd party addons to clean up this mess.
And what's more, make ANY changes to the settings and it starts a new backup line leaving the old to be manually removed. Even if you simply change the time a little. STUPID!!!
