The frequency with which backups are deleted needs to be changed.


Run the following as the zimbra user:

crontab -l | grep -i backup 

There should an output similar to the following:

0 0 * * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -del 1m --mail-report  

Adjust this using 'crontab -e'. '1m' is 1 month. This can be changed to d(days) and m(month) as needed.
