Is there a way to delete the Scheduled Task History in Macrium Reflect v8.0.6392?

I cannot find any way to do this.  My history goes back until May 2021.  I've explored the GUI, Settings, searched the KB as well as the forum and have not been successful.  If no other members jump in, perhaps a Macrium rep will reply.

EDIT:  Corrected history from 2020 to 2021

I found the logs once.  (In ProgData, maybe?)  We could try just deleting them ... with a backup handy in case this causes some drama.

In the Existing Backups display, Logs view, select the Purge icon in the toolbar.  You get a dialog with options.  Is this what you're looking for?

I Think the OP may be referencing the History of Scheduled Backups (unlike logs) as seen here:

I think I was wrong about having found the history data in the past. If I did, I was a better sleuth then than I am now.  I still think it's in ProgData somewhere but it is well hidden.  (I suppose it could be in the registry, but I reaslly doubt that.)

I appreciate that Reflect keeps the history, but there really should be a way to prune it.

Hi @Keith Weisshar

There currently is no way to prune the task schedule history. There is a dev ticket on the backlog for this though, which we will be implementing in a future v8 release. I can't confirm when this will be added at this time.

Kind regards.

Chris.

I know your reply was to the OP but I want to offer my thanks to you for getting back to all of us.

It is the SQLlite3 file "C:\ProgramData\Macrium\Reflect\AuditLog.db" databases "AuditEntries" and "sqlite_sequence"

I don't know what the effect is of deleting the records.

What would happen if you delete the scheduled task and then reschedule it?

I cleared the entries for AuditEntries and reset sqlite_sequence back to 1 no ill affects and history cleared
copy "C:\ProgramData\Macrium\Reflect\AuditLog.db" if you are wary so you can replace the edited version

@Keith Weisshar

The latest patch 8.0.6758 implements the option you're looking for.
