    Unanswered: Backup plan didn't remove the old files

    Hello, everyone:

    I have a backup plan that remove the old backup files more than two days. Last Monday, the SQL Server restart. Since that, the backup is fine, but it didn't remove the old backup files. Why and how to handle that? Thanks

    It happens. Manually delete them.

    If you used the database maintenance wizard to create the maintenance plan, check the log files (under %install directory%\MSSQL\LOGS) and look through the entries. There should be something in there to indicate why the files were not deleted.
