Rescue and Recovery unable to delete backups

2008-11-25, 21:00 PM

Hi,

 

I have problem deleting old backups with Rescue and Recovery - always when I try to delete them, it seems working, but it's not, it never finishes... I tried to delete just one of all backups, only the last or only the oldest one or all of them together, but with no effect. I have 6 backups of about 45GB together. And by the way R&R doesn't work well at all - also when I click on Optimize backup storage space, it doesn't work...

 

Possibly it is normal that when deleting old backups, computer seems freezing and it takes very long time, but I'm not sure if it ever ends.

 

I have R61 with WinXP Pro SP3, R&R last version 4.21.0016.

 

Is there any solution?

 

Thanks a lot!

V.K.

Uninstall rescue and recovery from add/remove programs. It will delete the backups that way.

Delete the last made backup on it own, you should then be able to delete the others.

I tried to delete only the last one first, but didn't succeeded.

 

But uninstalling the program at all from the HDD really saved more then 46GB of my space. Thanks a lot!
