Deleting archived files

Is there a way to have Netbackup delete files after it backs them up?  We have some daily logs that get backed up and would like to have them be automatically deleted after backup.  I know we can do this with a script, but I was wondering if Netbackup 5.1 had that kind of option built in.
 
Thanks,
Casey

An "Archive" is a special type of backup.  During an archive operation, NetBackup first backs up the selected files, and then deletes them from the local disk if the backup is successful. 
 
You can find more information about the Archive operation in the NetBackup System Administrator's Guide.
