Maximum Historical Intraday Days to Download *NOT* Respected

Despite reducing Maximum HID to download as shown
--> here Chart Settings: Date Range and Limiting Method >> Date Range in File From / To (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Data Limiting >> Date Range and Limiting Method menu)
--> as well as here Data/Trade Service Settings: Maximum Historical Intraday Days to Download (Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings >> Common Settings)

(I have reduced them to 10 days) --> see first screenshot

And despite having deleted all scid and dly files from my Data folder, I still do not get why the Data download wants to start in august as shown in my second screenshot.

Could you please help ?

Thank you.

That setting absolutely will be overridden, in the case of a Continuous Futures Contract chart. Do not use a Continuous Futures Contract chart.

Potentially there are other reasons it could be also overridden.
