    The use of the space in my disk is RED, so I have erased all the pictures that were using too much space. Now I want to erase my old backup before I start a new one. How can I do that in a easy way?

    Hello,

    You can delete your old backup through command line using "rm" command.

    Hello :)

    Your access level is listed as "Website Owner". This indicates you do not have root access to the server. Thus, you can remove any existing backup archives stored in your account's home directory via File Manager or FTP (/home/$username/).

    Thank you.
