In the backup wizard, step 3 of 6 under the Backup location section:
If this is my Folder specification: C:\\000\\<DATETIME yyyy_mm_dd>\\ AND I turn on the \"Delete existing backup filies in this folder for the selected databases\" will this housekeeping actually work?
I wonder because the folder name would change everyday... is the program smart enough to search these folders and delete databases that full under its criteria?

No, SQL Backup won't be able to delete the old files. It only looks in the folder(s) where the current backup file(s) are stored.
