why is there 2 "clear backup" options

Postby pierrem » Thu Oct 23, 2014 12:57 am

I noticed that under "Advanced" options, you can run an action before the backup runs to "Clear backup".

I also noticed this possibility under the "Scheduler/What" option called "Clear backup before run". Why is this option also in the scheduler? Does this option in the scheduler overrides the option in the Advanced section? I find it confusing. So to be sure I'm doing both!!!

Please clarify.

There are cases when that option is selected to be used only for specific scheduled tasks.
