    Hello,

    My backups seem to be taking up way too much space on my server, so I would like to store them all at Amazon S3. I set it up my S3 account as an additional destination, but is it possible to have S3 as the ONLY destination and not store the files locally?

    Hello :)

    Yes, this is possible. Simply ensure you leave "Retain backups in the default backup directory" unchecked:

    Backup Configuration - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
