    This is somethign weird ive noticed on a couple of our servers...

    instead of overwriting the daily backup each night a seperate backup for that day is being created, ie Sunday, monday, tuesday etc etc

    , how can i stop this and get it back to just the 3 backup folders of daily, weekly, monthly

    Go on, have a guess
    Erm, that's the additional backup rotation script I added for you as part of our service package work ;)

    If you want to stop it, remove /etc/cron.daily/backuprotate.pl and then remove the additional directories.

    Doh!

    i should have realised.

    Thanks for pointing that out...

    i may have to turn it off as the drive runs out of space doing a daily each day like that and a normal daily weekly monthly

    Is there a way to keep the daily backups running but stop the normal daily and weekly cpanel backups???? because they become obsolete with the 7 day backup setup dont they?

    It's not something that I've built into the script. You can certainly disable the weekly backups if you wish in WHM > Backup Configuration.
