Does anyone know where or what this change is? I haven’t been able to find anything different.

I have just posted an announcement about this. It is a feature to delete older backups automatically in a way that you keep less backups the older they get.

I’ve used retention policy - to be more clear, my question was about what is meant by “simple UI for exposing…”, as I still only see it as an advanced option with a single line text box.

Oh, we have two options. One is just a smart retention policy with defaults. The other one is a custom policy that can be configured as you like.

Ok, I see the answer to my question now: there are now new options inside the “backup retention” dropdown in the options screen. I hadn’t checked there, sorry.

I understand. I have just written an announcement about this and pointed out that we introduced a “smart backup retention policy” that is a bit more that just deleting old backups after a specific time or number of backups.

hmnm… I can’t find the “smart backup rentention” drop down menu on
Have just upgraded from the previous canary

As I mentioned in my comment above, it is now a new option within the “Backup Retention” dropdown, which is in the “Options” tab of the backup configuration wizard.

Well, I dont have a “backup retention” option available at. Only “Keep this number of backups” below “Upload volume size” in the “Options” tab of the backup configuration wizard.

Try doing a refresh (F5) or hard refresh (Ctrl-F5) of your main duplicati interface, then check again?

Also, try to go to the “About” page to check that you are running

haha, this trick did it :slight_smile: Odd that i still had old browser cache data
