There are no user-customizable clean up rules for Acronis Nonstop Backup storage. Instead, there is built-in backup autoconsolidation to ensure that the storage space is used in the most optimized way.

Backups older than 24 hours are automatically consolidated in such a way that Acronis True Image Home will keep daily backups for the last 30 days and weekly backups until all Nonstop Backup storage space is used. The consolidation will be performed every day between midnight and 01:00 AM. The first consolidation will take place after the Nonstop Backup works not less than 24 hours. If you turn off the Nonstop Backup for some time, the consolidation will start after you turn it on again.
