Storage limit not working

I’m using Snapshot to backup my sites once a week and also to be able to use Automate.

But in my Managed Backup settings I have set the Storage Limit to 1, but when I look at the Available Backups their multiples.

So it seems like the storage limit isn’t working.

My used cloud storage is pretty high as well. It happens on multiple sites by the way

    Hi Wouter

    Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

    I’ve consulted with our developers and they shed some light on the situation. Thing is that Automate backups are counted separately. The Storage Limit option applies only to the Managed Backups. Automate will always keep 3 backups of its own (but these backups are shown under the Managed Backups section). All backups created by Automate contain word “automated” in the backup archive title. Unfortunately, at the moment it’s not possible to set another limit for Automate backups.

    Kind regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
