Hi, I need to make a remote backup of a VPS with 180GB total and 110GB used. My understanding is that using FTP type backups, I would need twice the space in order to store the backup file locally prior to FTPing the file to the remote server. So I am now investigating "Standard" backups using a remotely mounted share.
However in WHM under Backups I read "Backup Destination (this should be a directory/NFS/Coda mount with at least twice the space of all your /home* partitions.)
Am I to understand correctly that I would need twice the space with either FTP or Standard backups? What would be the best way to execute a cPanel backup of this VPS? Thanks!
