    whats the difference between:

    Generate/Download Full Backup
    and
    Download Home Directory Backup


    ive been doing the second one with my sites, is that as good as the first one?

    Almost

    What the second one doesn't get is sql databases, some email data like filters and forwarders, cron jobs, SSL certificates, and probably a couple other things I'm not thinking of.

    Basically the second option is your website and email and the first one is a complete backup which allows allows a complete restore if needed.

    thanx, does doing the backups count against the bandwidth?

    Making the backups doesn't. Downloading or transferring them does.
