Now that i am using the new backup system of WHM (i noticed i was getting two backup emails per day and i always wondered why - because i was running the lagacy and new every day lol) so i have disabled the legacy backup. This also explains why i kept getting resource emails from my crons because i was doing multiple backups every day. Funny how those little things actually mean something huh... stupid me!

I would like to remove those files, does anyone know where they are stored inside my backup dir so i can just remove them. So it would be /backup/?

thanks

I found them, the address was actually in the email itself, i i learned to read them i might learn something lol...

And it also said it was a request from legacy backup (before i disabled it).

they are in in your /NAME_OF_YOUR_BACKUP_DIR/cpbackup/xxxxxx
