How to get a list of Backup Sets using BEM cli

Hey experts,

does anyone know "how to get a list of Backup Sets " in BEM Cli ?i need that list to generate backup sets list and expire them by script for particular period of time.

ENV.: Windows server 2012 - Backup EXEC 2014

I can see them using GUI interface in storage area but couldn't find cmdlets due to my poor powershell expertis.

Please share your thoughts.

Many thanks,

dpx

Why do you need to manually expire backup sets? If you have set reasonable retention periods in your jobs, they should expire automatically.  This is the recommended way.

@pkhWell, initially retention was set to 62 weeks but now i don't have enough space available on disk storage therefore i need to expire backup sets manually and this is huge therefore i'm looking for powershell cmdlet which can list backup sets and through script i could expire them.

I have not come across any cmdlet to list/delete backup sets.  You would have to use the GUI.
