    Hello,

    in backup configuration, i select Additional destination to be FTP or FTPs and there is a tickbox:

    On the readme page i still cant see any explanation that i understand
    Backup Configuration - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Is it meant to "move" instead of "transfer" or when this option is not ticked, it means this Additional destination is deactivated (not applied during backup)?

    Hi,

    Deselecting "Transfer System Backups to Destination" will not deactivate the remote destination itself, but instead, it prevents the cPanel backup script from sending certain server and cPanel configuration files to the remote destination. Often times, administrators want to preserve these configuration files in-case the entire server is inaccessible or broken, as it can make the task of provisioning a new server with the same configuration a little easier.

    Does this help explain the feature a little better?

    Thank you.

    Yes, i understand now. This feature is about system files not about cpanel accounts files. I somehow ignored the word "system". Thank you for always helping answer.
