Hello,

Is it possible to view older backups or are they always overwritten? Even if there are changes and unimus backups, we are only ever shown the latest backup. Sometimes with incorrect time information (older date).

Hi,

Unimus will only create a new configuration revision when there is a change. A backup is performed every time a schedule triggers for a device - but if there is no change, a new configuration point is not created, rather the validity of the current backup (configuration) is updated.

There is a more in-detail explanation on the Wiki: https://wiki.unimus.net/display/UNPUB/Backup

If you only see a single backup point (a single config revision) for your devices even if there are changes, perhaps this is due to how retention is configured on your system. Do you have any retention policies set in "Other settings > Backup retention"?
