While trying to find an answer, I found this thread: Incremental Backups Multiple Retention but I'm unsure if that is saying that it's not currently a feature if using incremental backups, and is only possible if I choose uncompressed/compressed. I just recently setup backups...

    SOLVED Incremental backups do not remove old files deleted from customer's account?
