SBackup purge

SBackup Purge
Here is the first screenshot of a new tab in the SBackup configuration that allows you to automatically erase old backups. There are two options: plain and simple "keep backups for X days and then erase them" or the smart (and default) progressive trimming option in which you have more backups of recent times and fewer backups of less recent times.
Now that the interface is up, I will be coding the part that actually does the trimming. The tricky part is dealing with incremental backups in progressive purge scenario. I will need to do a lot of testing to insure that I get it right, before I release it.

ObNotebook: A happy DHL courier woke me up today and picked up my laptop. I kept the harddrive. The courier said that usually Dell guys return the notebooks on the third day, so I could hope to get my laptop back on Wednesday.

what in the name of all that is (un)holy is that? That looks like documentation has mystically appeared in a dialog box.

(not to mention the speling of irrevocable.)

That is because ther is no documentation (surprise!).
And also I am still not native in English. :)
Spelling and style help is welcome.

Typo: irrecoverable.

Some spacing around the edges would be nice. Have you looked at the GNOME HIG recently?
