  • Hi Chris,

    When you edit a backup schedule, you can configure how many backups will be stored on the server (will keep the n newest ones per schedule).

    I personally keep 14 daily database backups and 4 weekly complete backups on the server (and have a daily cronjob on another server that downloads the Zip files).



    What Chris suggest is the good settings for most cases, 14 daily database + 4 weekly complete backups.


    I visited your website and saw that you don’t update your website everyday. So I may suggest you to set 4 weekly database + 1 monthly complete backups.

    But if the files’ size still very large, I may suggest you to manually perform the files backup. And delete it immediately after downloaded to your local computer. Some webhosts prohibit its users to use their diskspace for backup purposes.

    Thanks for all the help!
