Hi ,

I don't want to keep any backups on my server so I set the retention to 1 but I want to keep 7 or 8 Days backup in google drive.
What option I should make changes so that in my server no backups are kept and only in google drives all the backups are kept.

If you don't want to keep backups on your server you can just select:

Retain Backups in the Default Backup Directory at WHM>>Backup>>Backup Configuration

Retain backups in the default local backup directory, even after the system transfers the backups to another destination.
If you disable this option, the system will delete the backups after they move to another destination.

Okay I have unchecked this option : Retain Backups in the Default Backup Directory

I always wonder, how would you pull say 300GB of backups from GoogleDrive in case of a server crash?
We do use the Windows RDP to download and transfer the files faster.
Moreover Jetbackup provides fetching of the file from Google drive now so if you are not using Jetbackup then try it as it pulls data from google drive and restore the data of the user now.
