Acronis True Image 11: Back Rules not working

The backup rules I specified for the defined backup location are not limiting the total size of the files, nor the number of files, nor the freshness of the files.

I've have a complete image of my HD and I have a Task which creates a differential backup each evening. The number of differential files keeps growing and growing, i.e., the backup rules are not deleting old differential backups. The logs indicate that the program is not testing to see if the rules are being applied.

Anyone with an idea as to what I'm doing wrong or who has had this problem and resolved it, I'd appreciate your feedback.

Cheers!

Thanks techno!
My problem was in choosing the wrong path within the pull-down window to the Backup Location. This is a subtle problem and its poorly documented in the ATI instructions. This website cleared it up:
