Project Description

A C#.Net-based tool for automatically removing old backups selectively. It can be used when you already make daily backups on disk, and want to clean them up while still keeping some of the ones made weeks, months or years ago.

Key reasons to use it

  • It's easy to use and focused on one thing: cleaning up backup files
  • Intelligent management of backups makes sure that some of the recent backups are automatically promoted to weekly, monthly and eventually yearly backups as time goes on.
  • Zero-config for normal situations
  • Free and Open Source Software
  • For more information please refer to the documentation

Current status

BackupCleaner.Net is fully functional for basic use. A number of extensions have been planned to enhance flexibility.

The program and this web site are maintained by Steven Reiz (, currently working on a Dutch-language brand-oriented directory named .

This project is hosted on CodePlex. The documentation is hosted on Xayoo.
