Automatically Delete Files
Jun 29th, 2013 at 12:00am
Hello, I am trying to set a new job to automatically delete files that are older than 90 days. However, the files are on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux server. The job appears to run but the files do not get deleted. Any ideas/help??

Can you please
- stop the task
- change its settings to write "debug" (on the "other" settings)
- run the task for a while (so it should detect a few old files)
- stop again
- right-click it
- on the little popup-menu select "backup task"
Please email me the zip this creates and tell me the full name (\\server\share\dir\hello.txt) of a file you think should have been detected/deleted.

I would like to take a look at the settings and history for this task.
