    Great package.  Simple Backup is an easy way to protect your files. 

    My question concerns old backup data.  Is there any plans to include tools to remove backups that are old?  Right now I am backing up to a large hard drive, but I'm sure at some point pruning will be necessary.  I can write a script to rm old data, but having it in the program would be helpful.  Something in the configure program that removes everything x days/weeks/months or whatever old.

    • Yes, this functionaloty is planned. As a selfmotivation I do not delete backups on my main system and now harddrive space starts running low :)
