delete or archive BNA backups

    We have a daily backup scheduled for BNA configurations. The file were written to the root directory and recently we noticed the filesystem is getting full. How do we clear the backup data? Is there a way to set any retention in BNA or do we have to manually delete the files.

    Hi @vibipa,


    normally BNA kept the current backup and the backup before that in the configured backup directory - not sure what version of BNA you have. You can copy the BackupAlt (previous backup) away or delete. The Backup directory will be renamed BackupAlt at the next backup.   So, if you are running out of space with two backup, you need to handle this yourself (e.g. delete backupAlt).
