    Hey,

    I'm trying to get cPanel to only backup system files like /etc/fstab and all mentioned in System Backup doc. Problem is, there's no option to prevent accounts backup. I can deselect all accounts but it doesnt apply to future ones. Is there a workaround for this?

    Hello,

    You can disable "Backup Accounts" in "WHM >> Backup Configuration" so that accounts are not included as part of the backup process.

    Thank you.
