    Backup config is stored in /var/cpanel/backups, and is enabled for individual users via /var/cpanel/users/$username, with the value BACKUP=1

    The same place you always disabled specific users in Legacy backups. Only it's renamed now:
    WHM » Backup » Legacy Backup Configuration, down at bottom of that page, Select Users.

    You can't run both backup systems. You should be seeing a message at the top of the new Backup System that says:

    "The legacy backup system is currently disabled. Click here to manage the legacy backup system."

    That link will take you to:
    WHM » Backup » Legacy Backup Configuration, down at bottom of that page, Select Users.
