    What's the safest way to remove the old backups generated by Partial Failure retention?

    I have set mine to weekly and incremental. But there is 1 account that is causing failure and I have several weeks copies of these backups.

    Hello,

    You can manually remove a backup archive from the corresponding directory it's stored in with the "rm" command. EX:

    Code:
    rm /backup/$date/accounts/username.tar.gz
    Thank you.
