Hi
We have a few boxes running daily backups with no problems, but one of our clients is storing multimedia files and his account is growing to more than 20Gigs. (and will continue growing at 3 to 4 gigs a month)
We have a few big accounts and Cpanel has no problem to handle 7-8 gigs, but at this moment we had to turn off backups for the the 20Gis account.
Does anyone knows or has any knowledge how to handle backups of this size of cpanel's accounts?
The methods cpanel has maybe aren't the best for this size, we notice backups needs as much as empty space as they are, so we need at least 20Gigs of free space to create the backup itself ...

Thanks in advance

Thank you for the fast answer!!!
I've using cpanel for years but never heard the about "cpbackup-exclude.conf", thanks for the tip.
But, for the media files, is there any option through cpenel? or it's best to let cpanel handle the account and DBs using the exclude conf and make a cron to rsync the media files?
Thanks again
