    We are currently running incremental backups at local disk drives, to reduce the server resource usage each time backups run.

    Yet, we'd like to setup a monthly task to create cPanel backups to remote servers, for disaster purposes.

    Any advice on what should be the ideal configuration to archive this?

    We could create a script to compress backups with /scripts/pkgacct, but of course backup jobs would need to run twice.

    Would you advice we use a custom script to rsync the local Incremental backups?

    Not sure if "Additional Destinations" configuration allows to run the local backups, and send an additioanl copy to an external server.

    Hi @Duplika

    I can't advise on the custom script but if you read the documentation you can retain a copy locally as well as transport a copy remotely.

    Thanks!
