What are the files in backup folder when uploads on s3 are active?

(Pad Pors) #1

I have enabled s3 backups, as shown in this image:

but then when I look through our host, the backup folder has also some files in it (1 backup every 6 days ):

shall I remove these backups? (backups also exist in s3 bucket).
and are they supposed to be there?

is it possible to auto remove backups when s3 option is active?
