Running 5.8 std, no problems!  I do backups from my spouse's PC and I don't want the old backups to go into the trashcan since it doesn't free the space.  Usually keep 3-4 old backups and delete the oldest when I make a new one.  Haven't tried doing the deletion in a script, maybe they just go away then?

Answering my own question, added deletion routine to backup script and the deleted files do not go into the trash.  So, this'll work and it's even one less step since it's now automated.

Just for information: Usually, if you press "Shift+Delete" in your filemanager the selected files / directories will also be removed without going to the trash. You might get an extra warning though.

That is very wise, and I wish I had done the same... I lost quite some work when I wrote my old backup OVER the previous one, and then removed the originals.. That in itself was no big problem, but (due to my own stupidity) the backup had failed.... I've lost a lot of stuff forever.
