WHM won't delete backups after reconfiguring retention

Hi everyone,
I configured keeping 7 daily backups at the beginning, but after 2 months the disk space was nearly filled up and the backup process stopped running, with warnings sent to my email, so 2 days ago I reconfigured it to keeping only 2 backups. But when I checked it today, the 7 backups are still there, and the backup process hasn't started again.

Could you please tell me if WHM will delete the old backups to keep only two to free up the disk and run the backup again?

Thank you very much.
