Old backups are deleted automatically according to the rules defined in the backup options. Read 'Automatic cleanup rules' section in the user guide: local backups, backups in Acronis Cloud.


The backup menu option 'Delete', that has always existed in the program, removes a backup completely, with all of its versions.

Acronis True Image 2019 for Windows introduced a new option for you to have more control over local backups - 'Clean up versions'. This feature permits deleting just the selected backup versions and their dependencies on demand, without changing automatic cleanup rules and waiting until they are applied.

After the cleanup, some auxiliary files may stay in the storage. Please do not delete them!

If some of the backup versions are missing (e.g. .TIB files were deleted, renamed or moved in Windows Explorer), the program will detect it and offer to delete broken records and dependencies.
