    Hello,

    One is for the new backup system (/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup) and the other is for the legacy backup system /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/cpbackup).

    You should review the following:

    Documentation for the New Backup System and documentation for the Legacy Backup System.

    Hello :)

    No, they are not. Note that /scripts is just a link to /usr/local/cpanel/scripts.

    Thank you.

    Have we to make both backups (New Backup and Legacy Backup) to keep a secure backup system?? Or is New Backup enough?
    Thanks

    Either backup is sufficient. There's no need to do both.

    Thanks!
