    I have traditionally used the Legacy backups on WHM.
    I recently decided to try the newer system.
    The files that are created appear to need some program to extract them, other than just 7Zip.

    Can the newer back-up system only restore to a WHM server?
    If so, can I specify where the backup goes?
    I would like to use the backup to move a site.

    Also, if I wanted to extract the backup to my Xampp testing server, is there a way to do that?
    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    Are you attempting to restore the files via the server's command line, or on your local workstation? The "tar" command will allow you to manually extract the archive.

    Thank you.
