Hello everybody,

Unfortunately, I find in Proxmox 5.3 not the setting for maximum number of backups / delete old backups.
Do I need an add-on for that?
Currently I can only create 1 backup. He simply overwrites the existing ...

Thank you for your help

it is with the storage config in Datacenter -> Storage -> your backup storage

I'm working with Proxmox at least 10 years, and still don't understand, why count of backups is depends of the storage settings, instead of the VM. I have some small VM and want to keep more backups, then I can keep for large VM.

But storage backup limits is global.
