How can I quickly delete multiple backup sets at once?

If you want to delete multiple backup sets at once, without clicking the “Delete” button lots of times, then do this:

1) Visit your “Existing Backups” tab.

2) Hold down the “Control” key on your keyboard, and click on every backup set that you want to select. The row colour will change to indicate that the backup set is selected, and a pop-up will appear with some options.

3) In the pop-up (shown towards the right of the above screenshot), you then click the “Delete” button. You will then be asked to confirm whether you wish to only delete the backups from UpdraftPlus’s local records, or whether you wish to delete the backups from remote storage (if there is any – UpdraftVault, Dropbox, Google Drive etc.) as well.

That’s all!
