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 :)

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.
