Changing the "Keep Backups for the past x days"

Hi there,

I have Upgraded VEB 1.5 to VEB 2.0 9 days ago. In VEB 1.5 the keeping of Backups was set to 14 days. During the Installation of VEB 2 I changed this value to 7. So I expected VEB would rearrange the backup chain after 7 days Computer is running. But nothing happens until now. VEB 2 still keeps all restore Points. Do I have to delete the whole backup chain in order to Keep only the "7-days" restore Points?

Thank you in advance

I would think that the next time a backup is run, the merges would happen automatically and the chain is brought back to 7 days worth of restore points (which could be more than 7 though). If this is not the case, please create a support call (But a backup first needs to run to make those merges happen though)
