    • Hi Luciano, thanks for your question!

      Are your backups being run because of auto updates? You can see what triggered a backup by going to Total Upkeep > Backup Archives > and clicking on “View details” for a backup. Then click “Show” next to “More info”.

      You should see a section that says “Backup triggered by”.

      • If it shows a WordPress username, that user manually created a backup.
      • If it says “Cron” or “WP Cron”, it was a scheduled backup.
      • If it says, “Auto Update”, then an automatic update triggered the backup.

      I created a video to show you exactly what I am referring to:

      I hope this helps.

      – Brad
