    I generate my backups by incremental backup system without compression, can I zip them, download, extract from zip in Windows, rsync the backup all day and when I need a restoration, zip backup again, upload to a server and restore it?
    The cPanel take care of ownerships and permissions automatically?
    What about the symlinks in backup that are lost on Windows (and ownerships and permissions)?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I don't recommend this method for incremental backups when using a Windows machine due to the potential issues you noted (e.g. symlinks, ownership, permission). Instead, you should used compressed backups if you need to store them on a Windows system.

    Thank you.
