    Deleting Old Backup Plans


    How can I get rid of old Backup Plans that I no longer use? I am not talking about deleting Backup images, but the actual plan that you create when you make a new Backup.

    Thanks,

    Other backup programs will save them elsewhere and may have other rules about deletion...
