Acronis Secure Zone: deleting backups

  • The following command will delete the most recent backup in the FAAB archive:

    trueimagecmd /asz_delete_files /password:aszpw /filename:FAAB.tib

Assume, the contents of Acronis Secure Zone are as follows:

  C:\Program Files\Acronis\BackupAndRecovery>trueimagecmd /asz_files
/password: aaa
ASZ size: 5.387 GB
ASZ free space: 4.363 GB
FILE name: AAA2.TIB; size: 56414317 byte
type: image, base; creation time: 2/16/2009 3:43:34 PM
type: image, incremental; creation time: 4/25/2009 11:44:47 AM
FILE name: FAAA.TIB; size: 3125550 byte
type: file, base; creation time: 8/22/2009 12:28:40 PM
FILE name: FAAB2.TIB; size: 5147 byte
type: file, base; creation time: 8/14/2009 2:17:45 PM
type: file, incremental; creation time: 8/15/2009 2:19:43 AM

The above command will delete the incremental backup created on 8/15/2009 at 2:19.

The next execution of the same command will delete the base FAAB backup. By continuing with the FAAA and AAA names, you can clear the Acronis Secure Zone except for the last remaining base backup that cannot be deleted.
