Hello :)

Have you considered using the backup option included with cPanel? It will backup the accounts, which contain all of the necessary data to restore them on a new installation of the OS/cPanel if that becomes necessary.

Thank you.

I want to download all data to my desktop. Is that possible with the backup option included with cPanel? If yes could you give me instructions?

No, there are no options in Web Host Manager that allow you to download all of your account backups. You could access your server via SFTP and download them to your computer through that method if you prefer.

Thank you.

Once a week after backup I use this to download the backups. It seems a lot faster than ftp.

Code:
scp -P22022 -r [email][email protected][/email]:[COLOR="#006400"]/backup/2013-11-04/*[/COLOR] [COLOR="#0000CD"]/Users/jim/Sites/cPanelBackups/11.04.2013[/COLOR]

Assuming you have /backups as your backup directory in WHM . . .
This uses secure copy to put /backup from november 04 -> into a folder on my computer.
Obviously you'd need your IP, and to change the date of the backup accordingly, and put the full path of an appropriate folder on your computer to transfer it into.

I not understand nothing could you be more understandable please?
I recommend reading up on documentation about SFTP and SCP if you would like to use those methods to download files from your server to your local machine. One way to start (if you are using an OS such as Windows) is to use the SFTP feature in Filezilla:

Filezilla

Thank you.
