    Can someone explain how WHM performs the backup process?

    When I first turned backup on it made a daily, weekly and monthly backup. The second night nothing happened, there were no files created. Last night the dailies were there, but the files in the weekly and monthly are still from the first night.

    What is the purpose for the weekly and monthly?

    It seems to me that instead of overwriting the daily, it should be moved to the weekly each night. Then every week the weekly should be moved to the monthly before it gets overwritten by the next week.

    As it stands now, I have a backup from this morning and one from the first night but nothing in between. At the end of each month, I should have a complete list of backups from everyday of that month.

    Doesn't seem like cpbackup is doing this. Am I wrong?

    Also, when restoring from the weekly or monthly, I should be presented with a list of all the dates that I can restore from.
