Hi guys,
I'm backing up my website on an external destination (AWS).
The system process is always creating the backup on my server first, then it transfers it to the external destination, then deletes the backup file from the server.
The issue now that my usage has exceeded 50% of the server's disk storage, so the backup couldn't be completed on the server because it requires 50% of the disk storage to be free.

Any solution for this issue?
Is there an option to create the backup on the destination directly instead of creating it on the server first?

Hey there! There's currently not a way to do that, as the backup has to be generated on the cPanel side of things first before it can be moved over. You may get slightly better performance if you choose the Incremental backup option, although that can only be used with rsync connections to remote destinations.

Hi

You stated this "the server because it requires 50% of the disk storage" that could be mean that you have the following option set to 50%:

Check the Available Disk Space

Its under backup configuration. Set it to 20% or so and retry before spending on more space :)

I could be wrong but worth a quick look I guess.

You didn't get what I mean.
if your server's disk is 100 GB and you are using 55 GB, then you need another 55 GB free space for the backup!
