I don't clear as new backup work. I set "Backup Type" with "Compressed", backup monthly and backup daily with 3 days retain. The problem is that backup monthly contain all files of homedir but daily backup (last 3 days) the homedire is partial or almost empty, this is correct?

To clarify, the issue you are experiencing is in relation to an incomplete backup generation? If so, please review the backup logs in:

/usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/

Review the logs for the date of generation where an incomplete backup generation occurred. Do you notice any specific errors related to the account?

Thank you.

I don't see any error messages with that backup generation. Do you notice missing files or directories when you manually extract that backup archive?

Thank you.
