    • Hi Allison,

      Thanks for reaching out, in order to change your Google Drive backup destination you must first remove the current one. Navigate to the Total Upkeep tab from your WordPress dashboard click Settings then Backup Storage from the right panel. Find Google Drive under the Backup Storage settings and click Update. Scroll down and click “Delete settings” to remove your current destination. Exit the window and restart the configuration process.

      I hope this helps!

    • Hi Janice, Thanks so much for reaching out!

      You can remove web server backups from the Total Upkeep Backup Archives section of your WordPress dashboard. Find the backup you need to remove and click “Details” to the right of it. It will take you to the specific backups info page and in the right hand sidebar you’ll see a red “Delete Backup” link.

      I hope this helps!
