how do I delete backup sets on disk

Recommended Posts

running Express 7.6.

Setup a backup set using a NAS disk. ran a few backups as a test and now I want to delete the folder and .rdb files. Windows wont let me as they are 'owned' by Retrospect (well an unknown Unix user.)

I went in and clicked delete in backup sets, but that only 'forgot' them. how can I remove them from the NAS disk?

I have found the only way to remove the backup sets from a NAS is to manually connect to the share as the Retrospect users and then remove the appropriate folder. It is also recommended that before doing this to stop the Retrospect engine.

I found when I went into the backupset and used the Media | Recycle option, that deleted the .rdb files and allowed me to delete the folders. Now I have new problem of starting the app grrrrr
