Retain files for a certain period

Post by olliecampbell »


I've searched but I think I must be searching for the wrong terms.

I'm looking to keep 30days worth of files in a folder on the source of a backup job. Is there a way to do this inside a single backup job or would I need to run some sort of preparation job before running the backup job?

You can create a 'Housekeeping' profile in SyncBack to delete older files from a folder based on their last modification (or creation) date/time stamps. Please read this forum post for details on creating and configuring a housekeeping profile:


Thank you.
