    Hi there,

    I am at the heart a coder, but have recently begun hosting websites (mostly simulation games). At this time I have a setup where my main server retains 5 days of backups and my remote server receives the backups each night. I recently got a notification that the secondary server was almost full, meaning that copies of backups aren't being deleted as far as I can tell. What is the next step here?

    Thank you.

    Hello @LorienDarenya,

    Can you confirm which backup destination type you have configured on this system (e.g. FTP, Rsync, Google Drive)? Also, do you notice any specific error messages during the pruning stage in the recent backup transport logs found under the /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup_transporter/ directory?

    Thank you.
