    i moved a lot of accounts from 1 server to another - now the OLD backups are still inside the /backup/incremental/accounts/ directory

    how to delete the old moved backups? is there any script - to do it manually takes ages as i moved 200+ accounts

    now i found the option inside -->
    Home »
    Backup »
    Backup Configuration
    Retain backups in the default backup directory.

    if i disable the option i get the error:


    Error: Nowhere to back up: no enabled destinations found and retaining local copies is disabled.

    Hello,

    It seems you have not set the local/remote backup directory and therefore you are getting this error. Did you check this setting ?

    Hello :)

    You can also utilize the "rm" command to remove the entire incremental backup directory if that's what you need to do. Note this will remove all backups in that directory.

    Thank you.
