Starting on October 19, 2021, we will enable single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
To be prepared for this change and to avoid the need to register during your next ticket submission after the change, we encourage you to create an account here before October 19 using the same email address as your current Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account. You will continue to use ZenDesk authentication until we switch over to single-sign-on on October 19th.

    Hi there

    You know, this feature is being absolutely ignored by my Plesk.

    I have a small VM with Plesk, and I have set "2" (two) as the maximum full backups to be retained. However, the disk is being exhausted with daily full and/or incremental backups. I tried to change this setting from both web interface, and also command line, as Boss suggested here above. Old backup files aren't being deleted at all.

    Check the screenshot below: Backup for Nov 1st cannot be done due to lack of space, but it seems that there are 3 full backups already in place. The maximum is set to 2.

    Why is not deleting at least the older?

    Gabriel Schillaci This feature applies only to backups from the same level. On your screenshot two backups are from server wide (since they have corresponding note) and 3rd backup from 4-th of October is created under domain level.
