In BE 2012, disk storage is
In BE 2012, disk storage is managed by DLM and you set in your job how long you want to retain your backup set. See this blog and my article on how DLM works.
I have not come across a way to globally change the retention period for existing backup sets. You might have to go to the Storage tab, click on the disk storage. Click on backup sets on the left-pane, right-click on the backup sets that you want to delete and then delete them.
You then change the retention period in your job so that new backup sets would be retain for a shorter period of time.
