    I currently run incremental backups via the Cpanel three times a week on our server. The thing is, these backups are stored on the server's HDDs. Is there any software or plugin that will allow me to automate downloads from the server to a machine at the office - so if anything goes wrong with the server HDDs, at least we have the data and databases stored locally.

    Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

    Hello :)

    Yes, you can actually setup additional destinations in the new backup system so that backups are stored locally, and then stored to a remote destination. FTP is the most common protocol selected for transferring the backups to a remote server, but other options are also available. Documentation on this is available here:

    Thank you.
