Ok, then i will do it that way. Thank you for your answers.
So Backups will be done in night and expiration cleanup can be done after that.

Thanks, and Best regards,

I don't believe there's any fundamental problem. The obvious reason that its done the way it is, is that it uses less space and less time, since it prunes the backup before adding more data.
