    I want to switch from legacy backups to the current backup system

    Do I just enable the new system or do I need to do anything else like delete old backups?

    Kain,

    You do not need to do anything special, just enable it. You probably want to keep your old backups until you have enough copies of the new ones that you feel is enough to replace the old ones. Make sure you click on "Select Users", unselect the legacy and select all for Backups.

    Hello :)

    Yes, as mentioned, there are no special requirements. Remember to disable legacy backups after enabling the new backup system, and after a successful generation of the new backups you can delete the old backups from:

    /backup/cpbackup/

    Thank you.
