    Hi to all!
    I read several time documentation for generate new backups. Anyway i'm still on doubt and i don't understand better difference between Legacy Backup and Backups.
    I explain better my situation.
    I have a vps and an external Hard Disk for backups (with ft credential access).
    I need to backup ONLY
    -System configuration
    How i can do it? I don't want to store data in my vps... i want to use ONLY ftp drive.
    Can you tell me the option/options i ca enable/disable on the users?
    I have to enable this legacy backup to or is enough standard backup function?
    Many thanks!

    Hello :)

    You can configure the new backup system via:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup Configuration"

    It's documented at:

    Backup Configuration

    In particular, the following options should address your concerns:

    Select Users
    Backup System Files
    Additional Destinations

    This will allow you to select specific users to back up, ensure the system files are included in the backup, and configure the remote FTP server as the destination.

    Thank you.
