    When performing weekly backups with monthly retention, I was under the impression that STOR command would only be used once for the weekly folder and the file will just be copied in the monthly folder. But, according to logs it appears STOR command is being used for weekly and monthly folders. This means FTP bandwidth is being used twice for the same file. Is this the expected behavior?
