I notice that when restoring backed up files there are previous versions of the files available. How do I set how many previous versions of a file are retained by Ghost 12?

I'm referring to the "Backup Selected Files and Folders" type of job. If I am backing up daily and the file changes daily, I will have 30 versions of that file at the end of month. Some backup programs I've used allow you to limit the number of versions of a file that it will retain. Does Ghost have that capability?

In Chapter 8 of the User Guide, under "Limiting the number of file versions to keep":
You can manage your file and folder backup data by limiting the number of versions of backup files that you keep. This can significantly reduce the amount of disk space required, especially if the files are large, as is often the case with audio and video files. To limit the number of file versions to keep:
1) On the Tools page, click Manage Backup Destination.
2) Click Settings.
3) Check Limit file versions for file and folder backups, and then type a number between 1 and 99.
4) You can also check Monitor disk space usage for backup storage, and then specify a limit to the total amount of disk space that can be used for both recovery points and file and folder backup data. See “Automating management of backup data” on page 115.
5) Click OK.
Let me know if this helps. Thanks!
