    ok... were trying something diff here, we have used the ftp backup before to colocation ftp servers, no problems there... now we want to setup a server with a external usb hard drive, we have the box setup, usb drive is mounted fine, works great.... now... how would we set the backup in the WHM to backup to the usb drive? we made a ftp account on the other server, tested the backup via ssh, worked great but.... we dont want it to backup to /home/ftpaccount, we need it to write to /mnt/usb_drive/

    any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Just change the "Backup Type" to Standard (instead of Remote FTP Server)

    Then in the Backup Destination field, type: /mnt/usb_drive
