    I would also mention that the local backups are not being deleted even when using remote ftp. I got a warning this morning that /home was at 100% and when I checked in /home/backup there were 10 days of backups still stored in there and I would have expected them to be gone.

    When I checked the other servers it was the same story.

    This is the setting I have in all three servers and they are sending the backups to the remote ftp backup server BUT not deleting them locally..

    Backup Status = Enable
    Backup Type = Compressed
    Backup Daily = yes (mon-sun)
    Retain Backup = 14 days (so I think this will keep 14 days of backups on the remote server?)
    Backup Month = yes (1st and 15th)
    Retain Backup = 2 days.
    Backup Access Logs = yes
    Backup Bandwidth Data = yes
    USe local dns = no
    Backup system file = yes
    Backup Sql databases = Per Account and Entire MySQL Directory
    Default Backup Directory = /home/backup
    Retain backups in the default backup directory = no
    Mount Backup Drive as Needed = no
    Destination Type = FTP

    Any ideas?
