    I use the remote FTP backup feature that WHM comes with and love it so far. There's just one thing I wish I could do: One account is particularly large in file size (over 10G) and running the backup is extremely costly. My question: Can I exclude certain directories or limit the backup to just the public_html directory of the accounts? It can be a global setting.

    Thanks!

    Sure, there's a file on every one of your accounts called: cpbackup-exclude.conf

    Search these forums for that file name and you'll find multiple threads with tips to help I'm sure of it. :)
