    let's see if you can figure it out yourself - funny thing linux is.. so many ways of doing things and it's only a minor difference than before ;)

    Right now I'm still using Vultr Storage type server.
    The smallest plan with 160GB storage.

    Hm, Still confuse on how to only store backups every 12 hours and only retain 10 copies :/

    Eva any advice how to customize this config?
    Code:
    #########################################
    #           BACKUP INTERVALS            #
    # Must be unique and in ascending order #
    # i.e. hourly, daily, weekly, etc.      #
    #########################################
    
    retain        hourly    6
    retain        daily    7
    retain        weekly    4
    #retain    monthly    3
    
    To only do the backup every 12 hours and only retain hm maybe 15 copies?

    Updated yum on my backup server after several months and get a newest version of Rsnapshot.
    And of course backup stoped work.
    14 hours to find solution and fix errors in script.
    Now it is working (manually) and we shall see will it working OK via cron + pushover notification in morning
