    Description

      backup_auto_keep has a default value of 1 (one), which I have not changed, yet there are currently SIX backups of each course in my backup_auto_destination directory.

      The value of backup_auto_keep also has no effect on the number of backups listed in the 'Automated Backups' section of the 'Restore' page for each course; only the most recent backup is ever listed at any one time.
