    cPanel Community,

    Why are Weekly and Monthly backups smaller than Daily Backups?

    Before I started using compression, the difference was 272 GB versus 331 GB.

    After I started using compression, the difference was 167 GB versus 221 GB.

    Is there something missing from the Weekly and Monthly Backups?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Hello Jim,

    Do you see the same number of dated directories within the daily, weekly, and monthly directories? If so, you could run a command such as "du -sh *" within these directories to get a better idea of any specific differences in the amount of space utilized.

    Thank you.

    Michael,

    You're right. The weekly and monthly backups were missing some of the accounts, probably due to S3 cpbackup_transport failures.

    Hello Jim,

    Can you confirm if the issues with the Amazon S3 destination is addressed as of cPanel 68?

    Thank you.
