I was previously using a custom script I downloaded from somewhere awhile backup.

I had uploaded it to an account's /home folder, set the cpanel and remote sFTP login details.. and then a cron to run daily.

It was working awhile back but noticed it's no longer working.

Has anyone come up with a recent solution to do a schedule CPanel backup for an individual account and send it to a remote sFTP location?

There's no built-in solution for this as of right now for cPanel. Currently it's an all or none situation for the backup transport. I would suggest voting on the following feature request as well as joining in the discussion if this is something you'd like to see implemented: Backup Retention Based on Account

Thanks!
