    Hello!

    I'm a new user with cpanel. The backup setting has the Inremental backup switch on.
    But I can see only 1 (!!!) dialy dir inside our /backup dir.

    Does it mean that cpanel doesn't create real incremental backups? Just the last current state? (So I can't get back to a 4 day status.)
    (I looked at the restore settings too, but I couldn't find any options for it.)

    Thanks for helping!
    And sorry for my english!

    Regards,
    Krisztian

    You've got the Backup Interval setting set to do Daily, correct? If yes, you certainly should have Weekly and Monthy in there as well. In the email sent on Backup Complete, does it appear the backup did complete proper?

    Sorry for the delay, it was a long weekend ... :)

    Yes, dialy has been set, and the backup has finished correctly.

    My question is: if I want to restore a state like it was 4 days ago, then is it possibly ? Or just yesterday (dialy), a week (weekly) or a month (monthly) ?

    Thanks for helping!

    I have another question to get a real incremental backup solution.
    My idea is the following:
    - create only a dialy incremental backup in cpanel
    - the using this directory as a base for incremental backup

    Could this be a correct solution?

    My backup setting is the following:
    ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

    So if I unselect the 'Monthly' checkbox in 'Backup Retention' will I get a full backup at cpbackup/dialy dir ?

    Thanks for helping!
