To delete a basic backup (a backup taken with options such as -full, -incremental, -subincremental, or -destination), you must first use the ooqueryset tool to find the name of the backup set that was implicitly created for the backup you want to delete. You then use the -set option to specify this backup set name to oodeleteset.
