    Hello

    In a full server backup it's necessary to backup /home/virtfs or these files inside it are created later on demand ?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    You do not need to backup that directory. Please see the documentation for more information:

    VirtFS

    You should ensure you backup the accounts using the cPanel backup system if you want to make it easier to restore them at a later date. Backing up the entire filesystem might be helpful in some instances, but it should be done in addition to the cPanel-generated account backups.

    Thank you.

    Hi

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, I do both cpanel backup and full server backup (with bacula).

    best regards

    Thank you for the additional information. Just to reiterate, you do not need to backup the virtfs directory.

    Thank you.
