    I relise that cPanel remove old backups from amazon, and let me park just 5 last backup. How can I disable this feature, and prevent it to delete files.

    Hi Abdelmks,

    The answer is : Activate versioning in the bucket where you transfert your backups on the AWS side.

    To see your old versions (you will only see the last one by default) you have to click on the "see all" or "Deleted object" tab (depending on wich management console interface you are using).

    After that, you need to use "Life cycle" to manage your old files (transfert to other S3 services or delete old files).

    Hope it helps.

    Or you can set to keep as many backups as you want in the backup configuration
    "Retain XX Daily backups.", for example 999
