Hi Stan,

We are in the process of working on this. If you have more than one
full backup, you should be able to remove it in addition to all of the
associated incrementals. Future versions (0.4 and onward, which
hopefully will be released next month) will allow you to remove
incremental backups. It will also allow us to enable the autoremove
