Hi,
my CP Backup works fine on local directory and transport to additional destination but it not removes olds backups in the additional destination..
of course if i do not remove manually it fills fast !

Hi @leonep

And are the backups completing successfully locally? You can see the backup status on all the logs that are present by running something like the following:

Code:
grep "Sent Backup::" /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/*

Hi @leonep

A partial failure though could result in the backups either not being pruned or not being moved period, which is why I asked for the information I did.

You should also be able to see if there was issues with the pruning operation on the remote destination by checking the backup transport logs which can be found at:

/usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup_transporter/
