How to automatically delete unwanted files in backup that have been deleted on source drive

Hi, I’d like to know if it’s possible to set a setting to delete backed up files that have been deleted from the source.
If it’s possible. how may I do the above?


With Smartware you can’t - it’s back-up software not sync software. The whole point of back-ups is that if you lose/delete/corrupt the local copy then the back-up one will be there as a safety net and not auto-deleted too.

If you want such folder/file synchronisation instead of backing up, then you will need to use a different software solution to achieve that. But if you want to continue using Smartware, the only option for file deletion is to do it manually.
