    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.
