    Hello,

    When my server put its monthly backup to S3 it looks like the previous dailies in the bucket were removed. I only have the daily backup from the monthly, the other dailies are gone. The day before my monthly ran I had five dailies, per my schedule. Am I missing something or is this by design?

    Hello,

    Do you have a retention limit set for the number of daily backups you wish to keep?
    Check the /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/ folder for the log file of the most recent backup. See if there is anything in there that says "pruning"

    I have a retention limit set of five daily backups and one monthly backup. The logs do indicate that the system is pruning but I did not see ant log entry that indicated that more than one day at a time is being pruned.
