    Hello All:

    My backup directory drive is full coz i maintain daily and weekly backup.

    Now since i do not want to eliminate any of the options, And i have ample space in my primary partition, i am thinking of shifting weekly back to that drive.

    Hence i wanted to know how can we do it and also set WHM to do weekly backup in that folder and continue doing daily backup in the backup drive.

    I hope i have been able to explain my question.

    Thank you all for any inputs.

    You can't, the system in place doesn't handle backups like that. Also, placing backups on the main drive is just like not backing up at all. If that main drive goes belly up, where are your backups?

    If all is well on your server and all of the accounts, you might simply clear your oldest backups off the backup drive and free up the space for fresh new backups.
