We have a maintenance plan to do a full backup every night at midnight and a transaction backup every hour.
Both have "Delete backups older than 3 days" checked in the wizard
Here's the SQL from the Job:
EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_sqlmaint N'-PlanID 8DBCD331-76C8-4736-87ED-FB840696AE63 -WriteHistory -VrfyBackup -BkUpMedia DISK -BkUpLog "T:\SQL Backups" -DelBkUps 3DAYS -CrBkSubDir -BkExt "TRN"'
The full backups seem to be cleaning up correctly. However, I'm seeing Transaction logs going back for weeks and we're having to manually go in and clear space because of this.
Is there any reason why this would happen? Permissions? Job taking to long?
