    hwen we do the backup system migration , is the backup delete the old backup files of the legacy backup ?
    if no, wich files we need to delate manually ?

    when we delete account, their backup is deleted or we should take care of it to delete it after some days?

    Hello,

    Existing backups are moved to the location referenced under "Directory Structure" on the following document:

    Backup System Migration - Version 64 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    They are then retained based on the retention settings you have configured in "WHM >> Backup Configuration". Since backups are retained based on date in the new backup system, the backups for terminated accounts are automatically pruned once the date of the last backup they were included with is out of the retention period.

    Thank you.

    wehave moved to the new system , but the old backup was not moved and is not vailable in the restore backup .

    in legacy e have incremental backup in daily and weekly and monthly enabled, after we moved to the new system no restore point are available ?

    it should take time to complete the convertion ?

    Hello,

    Could you post the contents of the /var/cpanel/backups/config file on this system?

    Thank you.
