Delete source file(s) after backup?

Postby adrian » Tue Jun 09, 2015 6:07 am

Hello,

It is possible to delete the source file(s) without using the option Test after backup-> Delete sources after backup?
I'm asking this because 'Test after backup' can take much time if the source backup file is very large (and the destination is Network); I would like just to delete the source after a successful backup.
Maybe a 'Run action after backup' can be used? If it possible, please provide a how-to.
Thank you!

Hi,

If test is disabled, you cannot delete the sources automatically.
You can use a customized action after backup to delete the sources. That can be done only in our commercial edition: Backup4all.

Hi,

Thank you for your response.
We are using the commercial version Backup4All.
Could you please post (or send) a sample or similar documentation regarding the deletion of source file after backup using 'Run action after backup' ?
Thank you!

Best regards,
Adrian

Hi,

I figured out how to solve the problem by using a parameterized batch command in the 'Run action after backup'.
It was quite simple, actually.

Adrian
