R&R - can't delete backups

2011-11-14, 22:42 PM

I have created backups to a network drive.  I tried deleting them but was unsuccessful.  I let the job run for 4 days (yes 4 days) ran the computer at 100% but does not appear to have deleted anything.  How can I easily wipe out the entire backup set (all backups) and start over?  The computer is a T42p laptop running windows XP. 

 

Thanks.

Scott,

 

Please try what @GMAC said above. Although it was only an external drive I just recently had to delete all images. When I checkedmarked all images, my R&R installation ran & ran ... and ran. So I killed the process, rebooted and deleted one-by-one from the newest image backward (i.e. checkmarking only one image at a time). At least that did the That did the trick for me.

 

Hope it works for you too!

Robert
