I configured both systems to use incremental backups with 7 daily retentions (all week days). Both are retention only one day...

So now I configured (new backup system) manually:

---
BACKUPACCTS: 'yes'
BACKUPBWDATA: 'yes'
BACKUPDAYS: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6
BACKUPDIR: /hd2tbbackup
BACKUPENABLE: 'yes'
BACKUPFILES: 'yes'
BACKUPLOGS: 'no'
BACKUPMOUNT: 'no'
BACKUPSUSPENDEDACCTS: 'yes'
BACKUPTYPE: incremental
BACKUP_DAILY_ENABLE: 'yes'
BACKUP_DAILY_RETENTION: 7
BACKUP_MONTHLY_DATES: 1,15
BACKUP_MONTHLY_ENABLE: 'yes'
BACKUP_MONTHLY_RETENTION: 1
ERRORTHRESHHOLD: 3
GZIPRSYNCOPTS: --rsyncable
KEEPLOCAL: 1
LINKDEST: 0
LOCALZONESONLY: 'no'
MAXIMUM_TIMEOUT: 5000
MYSQLBACKUP: accounts
POSTBACKUP: 'no'
PREBACKUP: -1
PSQLBACKUP: 'no'
USEBINARYPKGACCT: 'no'
Note about BACKUP_DAILY_RETENTION:
whm doesn't allow to configure default value (1). I put manually 7.

Why my incremental backup doesn't retains 7 days?
