    I have a client who wants his own data backup sent to a different destination (I'm not sure where yet, but let's say Google Drive for this discussion).

    It appears that WHM's additional destination feature won't work because it would send my client the data of all of my other clients. I know I can turn off the backup feature on all of my other accounts, but I don't want to do that because they need to be backed up, too.

    Am I understanding correctly that this can't be done, or am I missing something? If it can't be done, can you suggest another solution? Thanks in advance for your help on this.

    You can not do it via the cpanel backup system but if they give you an rsync or sftp destination you could just set it up as a cron job.

    @GOT is correct the automated backup system will not do this and the only other method without a 3rd party application would be to create a cron for it. There are 3rd party applications like JetBackup that might fulfill this requirement as well
