Have just taken over a couple of WordPress sites. On one site UpdraftPlus backup failed due to lack of space on the server. To be safe have ftp'ed entire site to my local machine which has caused site to temporarily close down due to data transfer being exceeded for this month.
In my local copy of the site I have found 800MB of backups. (Only have a 2GB data storage allowance).
Cannot tell how UpdraftPlus was set up because I cannot access site at the moment. i.e., was it set up to store multiple copies of backups on the server.
Can, when the data transfer issues is resolved, I delete OLD backups from the server via ftp. I noticed that about 10 backups were on the server when I was able to look via the UdraftPlus settings - do these additional backups need to be removed via the UdraftPlus settings screen or will deleting them via ftp then cause UpdraftPlus to recognise the new status.
Thanks in advance
