    hi, after a couple backups, it fills the backup folder and is too much on the server, isn't it supposed to overwrite the last backup, so they don't keep piling up on the server?

    Hi,

    UpdraftPlus deletes previous backups after a run completes (to do so before would risk leaving you with no backups if something goes wrong).

    Because of how PHP creates zip files, that can mean that you need at least twice as much space free as in use: one lot for the backup itself, one for the temporary files PHP uses whilst making a zip file. And if you keep backups on the server instead of sending them to the cloud, then add some more.

    David
