  1. I have recently become aware of a flaw in which one of my scripts is backing up erroneous data. The script is working fine, it's just that the corrupt data takes up huge amounts of space and consequently I am running out of room for my media sets. Essentially, a media set that until November was around 30 GB has ballooned up to over 100 GB, all due to some files that I am now purging from the client's computer. The script backs up multiple clients, so I don't want to recycle the media set if I can avoid it. Plus, I have it scheduled such that it launches a new media set member at the start of each month. Now that we are in December, the bloated November media set is sitting there, plump full of unwanted backed up data. I've gone into "Past Backups" to see about Removing the November 1 backup of the affected client, but I get a tooltip warning me that clicking "Remove" will not delete any data, it will just remove it from the list. Of course, I had "retrieved" the Nov. 1 backup in order to get it on the list, since that appears to contain all the junk files - later backups of the same client don't show many files, and are of reasonable size. In other words, it sounds like clicking "Remove" will only undo what I just did, which was to populate the Past Backups list with the Nov. 1 instance. My intention, though, is to actually destroy the backed up data. Is there a way for me to do so? I don't think Grooming is the right thing to do, as the corrupt files were just created once then not modified thereafter (in other words, they were only backed up once).
