Hi,

I have DS 1817+ and last year I've setup Active backup for my 3 PCs and all is running fine and automated (no problems there).
Think i want to know is how i can adjust how much HDD space on my volume is Active backup is gonna to use?
It seems it reserved itself some hefty sum (over 10TB) and i can't get back those TBs even if i delete some backups from Active Backup tool ? i deleted 5 backups which should give me back around 2.5-3TB but my free space on NAS volume still remains same...

So can someone point me to instructions/manual how do i shrink size for Active Backup usage ?? Is there such option ?

Thanks

ABB does not have a mechanism for reclaiming space from deleted content on backups. It is a simple tool. Submit a feature request.
 
So it's just random size space reservation on volume after it's activated and no way to shrink it back with less regular backups ?
Thanks
