    Hello. There is a problem with default backup system:

    When you suspend an account, this account is not backing up in the future, but all files was backed up will not delete and server retein this files. In a year on my case this is more than 2TB.

    I not discovered any way to have backup directory only with the last year of updated backups. Maybe is a good feature to add on the backup system to avoid use plugins like "Backup TTL"

    Hello :)

    It's currently by design that backup archives of suspended or terminated accounts are not automatically removed. However, we do have a feature request open that you can vote and add feedback to:

    Remove backups of terminated accounts

    Thank you.
