    FMS cannot delete its own backup files


      I have a new MacMini running under MacOS X Server (10.7.4). It has a fresh installation of FileMaker Server 12 ( with several databases.

      Every night it runs a schedule that makes a backup of all the databases. Maximum backups to keep is set to 3.


      The schedule runs as expected but it cannot delete the oldest backup folder when the forth one is created. Well, in fact it deletes all THE FILES in every folder but one: a subfolder inside the RC_Data_FMS folder that contains 2777 jpgs.


      Permission are fine, no other software is running in the machine, databases are working without problems… but FileMaker Server cannot delete some backup files that it has created!

      I have also changed the path where the container saves the files but the problem is still there.


      Any idea of how to solve this weird problem?
