I answered correctly, but the answers about the account not having Delete rights are valid too. Create Files / Write Data , Delete and Delete Subfolders and Files are 3 different advanced permissions for NTFS

I agree with your point that the "permissions options" are valid issues especially when best practices were mentioned.

I think the point of the question was that best practices, as implemented in the wizard, are not complete and require some additional steps to create a practical backup process.

Bit late in the game, but trying to catch up. The question did mention they were setup with "best practices". Best practices would indicate that you would delete old backups...

Cheers,

Maybe, but wouldn't best practises also include ensuring that permissions were correct, and ensuring that the requirement for these permissions was documented in such a way that future changes would take it into account?

Given that best practises clearly were no followed, I just went for the most obvious failure. I've had a junior person do that to one of my customers, and another do it to an in-house system; both were on Sql 2000 not on Sql 2005 but the principle is no different. I've never seen a disc filled by old backups through missing delete permissions. So it seems clear to me what the most obvious is, and I agree with the officially correct answer.

To be fair, it only says best practises were used to build the maintenance plan, but not necessarily to set up the log backup.
