Dear Forum,

I use HyperBackup for backups to a remote DS and also the C2-Cloud and its running smoothly.
Lately I realized a backup-task is eating up a lot of space on my C2 target, tho the source-size is more or less the same.
Thanks to deduplication multiple backup-versions actually shouldn't take more space on the target (right?).

Anyway, I want to reduce the kept backup versions in the "Version list". Is there a way to batch-remove some? Or when do they actually get deleted after I change the rotation schedule? Deleting one by one takes ages…

Any other clues why my target-space is growing so fast (while the source-sizes doesn't)?
