How does grooming work?


Recommended Posts

I've set my main backup media set A to groom at 14 days. Does this work automatically or do you have to run this manually anytime you want it to groom from the groom icon in the tool bar.


If you have to run this manually, is there a way of creating a script that would run it. The guide simply states that v8 includes grooming now but doesn't indicate how this is intended to work.

Its alright. I figured this out. There's a script for grooming and I set it to run on Sunday evenings at 10 pm.


They really need some documentation around this as the only thing the quick start guide says is:


Retrospect 8 introduces disk grooming, which intelligently reclaims space on Disk Media Sets by deleting older files and folders to make room for new ones.
