This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Set Maximum # Of Catalog Backups, and Auto-Replace Oldest

Implement possibility to specify automatic deleting of old backups.
Old backups of LR catalogs are building up quite fast which is a waste of storage space unless old backups are deleted manually. Would be nice to automate the removing of old backups.

It is not necessary to keep catalog backups forever and having to deal with this routine housekeeping chore is a PIA. I would like to see this added to some future release of LR.
