    Hello, i have 2 storage disks installed on my server. /dev/vda1 and /dev/vdc

    Currently the backups are stored on vda1.

    How can I store backups on vdc ?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    All that is necessary in WHM/cPanel is to set the backup directory as indicated above. You must mount your secondary drive to use it. If you are not confident with the process, you should certainly seek help from your hosting provider because you can easily brick your server. The article below discuses the process:
