Stash backup automatic delete old backups

Hello

Is it possible over parameter or Properties to automatic delete old backupfiles?

i.ex. files older 14 days or keep only the last 30 backups?

Thanks

Martin

Hi all

Sure, with a cron job everything is possible. But we like solutions which give us all options included, like to gz the output, remove old backups, if we need it. :-)

So I will extend our backupscript with a delete command like this:

find /var/..../backups/* -mtime +30 -exec rm -f {} \;

Thanks

I am quite sure that its not possible. Why not setup a cron to do it?

Hi Martin,

As Timothy has stated - this is not currently possible. Is it possible to use a custom cron job instead?
