I am using Redgate SQL Backup 6.4 across all my SQL instances, these are all encrypted using 256 bit and are set to delete all backups older than 5 days.

As a policy in our organisation I have to change the password for the backups on a monthly basis which was done earlier this month. Problem I have is this morning my backup drive was full due to the job not purging any of the backups older than 5 days with the previous password, however any backups older than 5 days with the new password had been deleted.

Is this by design as it places another manual step of deleting backups with the old password when I have to do the password rotation?

regards,

Dave

This is by design. I'll raise a feature request to allow additional password(s) to be entered for the purpose of deleting old backup files.

Hi Petey,

I was wondering if the feature request you were going to raise below was ever done.

i.e. Does SQL Backup Pro 6.5 or 7.0 purge backups with a previous password?

thanks in advance,

Dave

The reference number is SB-4653, if you need to reference the feature request in your correspondences with Red Gate. This issue is still under consideration, and has not been implemented yet.
