Trim Oscar Backup Folder
#1
Question 
Trim Oscar Backup Folder
Any way to automatically (preferred) or manually trim the OSCAR Backup folder?   I noticed my Onedrive was getting full, and I had 15GB of OSCAR backup data.  A few were from older machines, so I removed them.  I'm currently at 1GB.   Just wondering if there is a way to trim them, automatically or manually.   I did change the option to compress files.  Not sure if that will help a lot. How long do I need to keep the files in the backup folder? a few days?

Specifically, the folder that seems to be filling up is:
C:\Users\username\OneDrive\Documents\OSCAR_Data\Profiles\oscarname\ResMed_xxxxxx\Backup\DATALOG

Look in the /Backup/DATALOG folder. You will see that the backup data is further separated by the year. Either move or delete the unwanted years.

So it's ok to just delete files/years?   Cool!
Any automated way?   Does it just grow forever?

There isn't any automated way. You'll just have to let your fingers do the walking.
