    We need to be able to have daily, weekly and monthly backups locally and offsite. We have a very high cost of bandwidth so need to only backup what has changed offsite.

    If I set a "Compressed" or "Uncompressed" backup to occur, and then define an "Additional Destination" and setup an SFTP location will only what has been changed synchronize to the remote SFTP server?

    If this is not possible would anyone know of an inexpensive solution/plugin that would provide the ability for remote differential backups over SFTP? I've found the addon cPRemote which seems to provide this functionality and wonder if anyone has any experience with it.

    Thank you

    Hello :),

    cPremote dose not provide both backup at same time, You have to either configure remotely or locally backup with cPremote.

    I will suggest you enable incremental backup on your local server with the cPanel backup system and rsync that backup's to your backup server using rsync scripts. You can execute that scripts with cPanel hook, That means your rsync scripts will be executed on your server once your cPanel backup is completed

    Hello :)

    Per our documentation:

    There's a feature request for what you are seeking at:

    Incremental Backups Multiple Retention

    As far as third-party providers, some users utilize R1Soft, but there are likely several providers available to serve this need.

    Thank you.
