DELETE Files Script

Recommended Posts

If you have a Disk Backup set, you can run a groom script.

 

The Backup set should be set to retain a certain number of backups, which should correspond to the number of backups you (normally) run during a 14 day period.

 

So schedule a groom script during a lull period, such as during the weekend.

I am on Retrospect Server 9.0.2 for Mac OS X 10.6.8 FYI

 

Struggling to get my Head around this sorry...

 

If I was to do it in the OS X Finder I would search for files created before a date and then select and delete them all...

 

I'd like to simply try and do the same with Retrospect: a Rule ... and move/copy-with-move those files to a new location...

 

Possible?

 

Thanks, James R.

This is the board for the Windows version of Retrospect. As features differ between the two versions you may get a better response if you post on the Mac board.

Do you mean like an "Archive" script? That would backup the files to a media set and delete the originals.

Create a rule to include only older files.

Thank you,

 

I don't want the file in a 'Media Set' or a single large Image file as it were.

I was hoping to have them as a simple COPY of the OSX Folder with all files and folders visible in the Finder as it were....
