    I just ran my first daily backup last night with weekly retention. It properly ran and created a daily and weekly folder with the same contents in both. How will that work tomorrow when it runs again?

    Thanks,
    Frank

    Your daily backup should be replaced with the new backup. The weekly will not be changed for a week and then will mirror that days daily backup.

    Cool.

    Even though I started this today, I can assume that it will refresh the weekly on Sunday morning? If I turn monthly on, it will refresh on the 1st?

    Thanks!

    From what I have noticed, it seems to update in exactly 1 month intervals from the first one, not on a particular date.

    The description posted by cpanelinfoseeker is accurate. Daily backups are updated one each day. Weekly backups are updated once each week. Monthly backups are updated once each month. The day of the week (for weekly) and the day of the month (for monthly) is not set for a specific day but rather dependent upon the age of the existing backup (i.e., weekly backups are updated when they are a week old, and monthly backups are updated when they are a month old).
