    I have many accounts with Gigs of information.
    During usual cPanel backup server goes crazy on copying and archiving.

    Have anybody seen any other backup script for cPanel users - not such resource expansive?
    Please advise.
    Thank you!..

    Take a look at this link for a widely used backup script that sounds like it should fit your needs.

    I've been quite successful backing up entire 250gb home drives with rsync/rsnapshot. I backup 12 servers on a daily basis, each with about 250gb to 500gb of space to 2 servers that have roughly 2TB of space. rsnapshot enables me to keep multiple copies of the data for about 4 months.

    If you want me information, let me know.
