Run the cPanel backup manually from shell for selected accounts

I have setup on cpanel the automatic daily backups to be compressed.

There are some accounts that use big amounts of disc space,
so I want to exclude them from the daily backup, but I don't want to leave them without backup at all.

So is there any way to manualy run the cpanel backup from ssh/console for these 2-3 accounts ?
( I will run it once a week via cron).

What the command would be?

thank you.
