MAX BACKUP SETS RETAINED

Recommended Posts

If I have a disk used for backup, I can limit the GB used by any particular backup set. Getting this right is like picking the Kentucky Derby winner, which I have done on occasion.

 

I would much rather set NEVER KEEP MORE THAN xx SETS instead of the GB limit. I intend to keep 2 or 3 sets of some backups if I can, and if I could do the math and keep users from adding data, I could set the GB limit, but... And if I don't set any limit (99%), one of the sets winds up taking over the disk.

 

This would be similar in concept to the "keep at least xx set" option for the inevitable DISK FULL AS USUAL problem, but it would be a MAX number of sets not a minium number.
