    Few weeks ago I moved to new hosting company. In this migration first installed updraft and restore my site.

    I use keep 5 backup history (Dropbox). However after this migration updraft plus not clean up the old backup files. Still there's more then 5 backup history in my dropbox account. I mean updraft not delete previous configuration (before uninstall updraft plus backup files) backup files. However it properly clean new configuration backups (after new installation backup zip files). In addition to that I face this issue if I deauthorized and reauthorize dropbox account access in Updraft settings.

    I face this issue after uninstalled and reinstalled updraft plus plugin. Can you fix that matter?

    Hi Bluemad,

    UD won't know about backups that were created *after* the time of the backup set that you restore (because info about the backup set is itself part of the database which is restored).

    The development version, however, can scan and detect untracked files in your remote storage, so give it a whirl: http://updraftplus.com/faqs/devversion
