I have just started a full backup and noticed that I had set MR to delete all backups older than 15 days. This it did (one full and three diffs).

However, it did it in a dangerous way IMHO. They were deleted at the very beginning of my full backup, so if my system crashes or if there is an issue before it has completed, I'm up the Swanney without a paddle. PLEASE could you set this option in the new release to delete AFTER a successful backup.

Needless to say I will be disabling this option ASAP.

With kind regards
