I'm using the Incremental Forever option. Recently I've changed the retention rule from 17 backups
back to 14. Now I see that the program deletes a number of incremental backups without merging
them first with the base. Is this a bug or is it "works as disigned"...?

Hi Hendrick 

Thanks for sending the support case. We can see from the screen shot you supplied that your files are being merged correctly.



Your Full image '-00-00.mrimg'  was correctly merged with '-10-10.mrimg' and files '-08-08.mrimg' to '-10-10.mrimg' were deleted.  The Full image is now at the same state as the previous '-10-10.mrimg'

Files '08-08' and '09-09' were included in the merge process as they are part of the backup set and are in the merge range. When multiple files are merged the From and To files for the merge are shown in the log as a 'Merging <From> with <To>'.



Kind Regards

Nick - Macrium Support
