[Plugin: BackWPup] Dropbox won't delete old backups (7 posts)

    In the settings for Dropbox, in the field "Max. Backup Files in Dopbox Folder", I put 2, but in my dropbox there are 5 backups.

    I thought it would delete old backups automatically, instead of keeping them all. Did I misunderstand what this was supposed to do?

    Thanks

    You mean in dropbox? No. They are zip files, and once in dropbox, they have not been touched.

    What's more, it just not working anymore. I opened this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-backwpup-not-working-with-32

    I disabled the plugin, deleted one of the option entries in the database for it, and reactivated. It now works fine, except it still doesn't delete older entries in dropbox. I am getting one error: "[ERROR] DropBox API: (52) Empty reply from server"

    Thanks so much for your reply. And thanks for the plugin, it's just awesome. The best backup plugin around, as far as I'm concerned.
