Automatically pruning (c)XSITools repositories

Since XSIBACKUP-PRO 11.2.0 (c)XSITools repositories can be pruned via the --backup-room argument. When the (c)XSITools repository reaches the specified size, it will start to delete backup folders along with the blocks that belong exclusively to that backup set. Therefore you will be able to create repositories that grow up to a given size and since that moment rotate backups by deleting the eldest sets.

The pruning mechanism will allow the current backup to complete, even if it exceeds the set --backup-room limit. You should then be aware of the fact that if you pretend to keep things excessively tight, you might end up with a full repository that cannot be pruned. If that is the case, the solution is simple, lower the --backup-room limit and things will start to roll again.

Trying to use the full size of a disk is always a really bad idea, but in case of using SSDs it's even worse, as SSDs endurance depends very much on leaving at least 10% of the disk free of data. This is due to their nature, as the SSD cells can only be rewritten a finite number of times. What that absolute figure is will depend on the type of SSD, so you should follow the disk manufacturer instructions.
