BackWPup Free - WordPress Backup Plugin
Backup files not deleting (3 posts)

    The file deletion setting under To: Folder does not seem to be working. I have the option set to store only 3 files, but already at 7.

    The settings were changed just once, during the setup of the backup job but have not been changed since. Here are my settings:

    Plugin version: 3.1.2
    ARCHIVE FORMAT:
    backup_%m-%d-%Y_%H:%i
    Preview: backup_05-20-2014_20:26.tar.gz
    Tar GZip

    Hello, the : is not allowed in file names. I will remove it on save in next release of BackWPup.

    Thank you Daniel. I did check my logs and did not see any errors regarding the deletion. May I suggest that if the delete does not occur that either an error or message is logged.

    Much appreciated.
