AOMEI Backupper's deletion mechanisms free you out of low disk space

The disk that your backup is saved on doesn’t have enough free space? Backup disk is almost full? Low disk space for backup? Backup failed due to lack of space? As you may set up a schedule to automatically do backup daily or weekly, and the size of disk space is limited, so your backup disk will run out of space quickly or someday. It is a real pain to manually delete old backups. Don’t worry about it. AOMEI Backupper makes it easy to delete old backup image files automatically.

Deletion Mechanisms

Either during or after a backup, AOMEI Backupper can automatically delete old backups to free up disk space for new backups based on the mechanisms below:

  • Delete full backup and its chained incremental or differential backups older than a specified number of days, weeks, months, or years just after the next backup finishes.
  • Retain a maximum number of full backup and its chained incremental or differential backups, deleting excess backups just after the next backup finishes.

How to set deletion mechanisms

If you want to protect your data, and worry about that backup image occupies too much space, you can try AOMEI Backupper Professional.
