How to delete files from the destination drive

Post by Badracer666 »

I notice that when I backup my files if I have deleted a file from my source drive it does not remove it from my destination. Is there a way to set FBackup so that deleted files on the source are deleted from the destination?

Thanks

Hi,

Please make sure the "Remove excluded or deleted files from backup" option is selected.
Also note that the files are removed from destination after the backup is executed. Make sure there is at least one file or folder to be backed up in order for the backup to run.

this way is a pain in the neck if you don't have a new file to add you can't delete a old one that you no longer need any way to fix this

You mean you want your backup files to automatically disappear when you delete the original. YOu think that needs to get fixed? How would you expect the backup file to get deleted unless you run the backup job?
