I have my backup configuration set to remote storage on Backblaze. My backups are being stored there. I have Retain Backups in the Default Backup Directory unchecked so that all backups are sent to remote storage. WHM still stores weekly and monthly backups in the /backup directory. I'm sure it's a bug. I was investigating why I was using so much disk space and found the weekly and monthly folders present in the /backup folder.

Hi! Can you check the backup and transport logs to see if there were any failures or errors for the backups that were not pruned from your local /backup directory? Since pruning occurs at the end of a backup run, failures within the backup may prevent it from being pruned. The following article contains the location for the backup and transport logs:
