Macrium backups. by Peter Jason
I backup regularly with the latest Macrium. I manually delete the old backup and replace it with the new. Can this be automated by just having the new backup rolling over the old? For a bigger HDD can I ask it to roll over the oldest backup while keeping the latest ones?
