    I have a server with several normal domains, then I have this one domain that is massive.... 10 gigs.

    I would like to back up all the servers domains but I can't use the back up tool since the one domain is too big to tar.

    If there is a tweak or something I am missing to block domains that are a certain size or bigger from the standard backup utility that would be life saver.

    I second that. Currently there is no such option in WHM/CPanel. However it would be extremely useful to for example skip the home directory of any web site that exceeds 1 GB in size (or whatever you specify), i.e. only backup databases, email accounts, etc of such accounts but not anything else.
