How backup rotation works?
To save disk space, it is possible to set up the limit on the number of stored full backup files. When such a limit is reached, the oldest backup file is removed so that a new file can be stored. The limit is related to full backup files only (the number of incremental backups is not limited). The backup rotation is performed only during scheduled backups.
When the server-wide limits are set in Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Settings > Maximum number of full backup files to store, the limits on all subscriptions, customer accounts, and reseller accounts are re-calculated according to the specified value.
Note: Backup will be rotated on local and remote storage once the new backup is created.
Note: Customers will be unable to set up greater values for these limits. However, they can set up lower values.
Note: When backup creation is enabled on both local and remote storages, backup on remote one is considered to be as "master" branch and rotation is performed based on number of backups on remote storage.
