How do I remove old backup sets in NOBU?

I have months of old backup data that I don't need and my storage quota is being compromised. Is there an easy way to delete old files - by backup date/version would be nice :) Not sure how to individually delete files from a specific backup set - it seems like the options are only by file name?? Am I looking in the wrong place?

Thanks you!!

Hi howb,

You can remove folders as well as single files. If you wanted to remove an entire folder you would click on the folder name it resides under and a list of contents will show up on the right hand side. From there you can check off the items you want to purge from the account.

So say for example you're in My Documents and want to remove a folder under it called Misc Files, you'd start by clicking on the My Documents foldername on the left hand side of the Purge Files window. From there place a check next to the foldername on the right hand pane. Once all the content is selected click Purge at the bottom and let it run.

Since purge works like restore - it can take time as it processes through all the history. Let me know if you need more explicit directions.
