It has its uses in a multi DC domain, you could get replication
problems where no DC has a full and correct AD.

The Problem I have with 'KEEP_DAYS' in Louis's script is not that it
doesn't work, but why would anybody want to keep backups for certain
days. The AD database changes frequently, so any backup for 15 days
ago could be well out of date.
