I make periodic copies of the mrimg files on removable media for offsite storage. How do I delete the obsolete MIG protected files from this media.

Capair's method works if the backups reside in a location targeted by any of your definition files or you manually add the location to the "Folders to search" list.  Alternatively, you can disable MIG on specific volumes or even system-wide.  Instructions for each method are in this KB article about MIG.

Thanks. Helpful. It is a bit mystifying as to when the Action Menu shows up; maybe it is toggling the check mark.
