I want just 1 copy of News Article

Is there a way to have only 1 copy of a news feed on my Kindle? I tell Calibre to delete news older than 0 days but it doesn't seem to do so. It just downloaded them for today and there are 2 copies of everything on my pc and synced to my Kindle. I tried it days ago using "1 day" but it still didn't do it.

I can't enter negative numbers.

I found another post that said that this cannot be done. Perhaps in the future some type of script that can go and delete the older files directly from your Kindle.

If I had more knowledge about these types of things I would try it myself. This program does 99% of what I need, so I cannot complain. Very nice program and quick responses to bugs.

Eventually calibre will have support for syncing. When it does files on your reader will automatically be deleted when they are removed from calibre.

Does anyone have any ideas what such a syncing could look like? Are there already plans?
