How to Delete Old Backup files?
This article applies to:
AOMEI Backupper v1.6
When you backup your data regularly, the number of image files will grow over time and finally fill up your destination drive. In this case, you may have to delete old backup files to free up space for new backup.
There may have different backup configurations. However, for your reference, here we introduce how to deal with two common backup configurations:
2. For Full Backup + Incrementalbackup, since every incremental backup is based on the last backup, so if youdelete any previous image file will make the entire subsequent image filesinvalid. Therefore, you must start from the last one and backwards deleteincremental backups. After that, you may start new incremental backup now.
3. For Full Backup + DifferentialBackup, every differential backup is based on the last full backup, so you candelete any differential backups to free up space and then start a new one.
