How do I configure backups in WHM?

    I temporarily have only one hard disk on a server (no second backup disk). When I choose 'Configure backup' in WHM, what should I write in the 'Backup Destination' field to have backups saved to a folder on this disk? - the default is /backup - so if I enable backups in WHM will a folder named backup be created on this single disk, and backups store there?

    Sorry for my ignorance. I'm still new to linux and a little confused as to how it works. On the other servers I have a secondary drive and I only have to add /drive2, for instance, to have backups directed to that drive - not as in windows showing that it is another drive with C:, D:, F: etc.

    Thanks

    A second hard drive is Required for the backup feature/configuration.

    In my opinion, a 2nd hard drive is a great insurance policy one should have :D
