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.

Hello,

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

Thank you.
