Grooming do not remove old SQL databases


Recommended Posts



Running the newest version of multi serrver.


I have a backupset containing MS SQL databases and I have set grooming to delete data older than 7 days. Looking at the backupset I can see there is very old sql databases that has been deleted from the sql server a long time ago.


Does grooming not delete old removed databases?

We have a simular issue where an SQL database is deleted yet Retrospect still tries to back it up, throwing a 'database missing' error in the logs. Only clicking on the login button seems to kick off a SQL 2000 database scan again.


Is this right? Seems odd it doesn't do a rescan each time it kicks off a backup of SQL.
