my backup storage has filled up rather quickly. I set up a blackout window for pruning after aging some of the older backups but, the SIDBPrune.log shows “12724 34c8  11/07 15:08:01 ### PRNCTLR StartPrunerThreads:4536 Not starting any pruning threads as pruning is disabled on MA” . I believe i have enabled it in every place i could find. could anyone provide me a list or point me to an article showing all the locations this could be enabled/disabled from?

 

Thank you

Please also check if the option “Enable pruning of aged data” is enabled on the mountpath. Follow this doc link
