Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » Are old remote storage copies removed automatically?

  • Resolved Ken Soszka


    Hi, great plugin! My question is, are old Remote Storage copies (on Amazon S3 in my case) removed automatically once the number of backups defined in the Retain Backups setting in the plugin has been reached? If not, do you know if there is a way to configure S3 to only save files for a certain amount of time, or only a certain number of files?

    Thank You!

    Hi Ken,

    Yes, deletions will take place automatically for the currently selected storage method. You can check this out by turning on logging, and reading the logs. (Or just wait until it happens).

    For S3, you can also deploy S3’s time-based deletion features – but those are built into your Amazon S3 console, not part of UpdraftPlus.
