Moodle plugin of the month – Clear backup files

A nice plugin for deleting old Moodle backups…

Course backups can be an expensive task at times. It could take loads of unnecessary space and memory on the server. Administrators can clear backup files on the server to free the server space.

This admin tool clears all backup files from the server. It is useful for freeing up space from dev and test servers once they are refreshed from production.

It also gives a report og how many mbz files were deleting clearing how much space.

You can install this plugin from:
