    I need to WHM backups like: client A, only Mondays, Client B, each weekday, client C, one per month, and so on. I ask, how can I do it?
    Thank you for your help.

    There is no automated way to do this in WHM.

    Thank you.
    Do you know any external software? I would like to give my customers the option of selecting their backup wishes from CPanel.

    I don't. With Backups enabled on your system your clients can grab a backup anytime they like directly from their cPanel.

    Your plan here doesn't really make much sense, TBH.

    For one example, if your client A could get backups to work for him, "only on Mondays" what happens when something goes wrong with his account, or worse, your hard drive on that server drops over dead, on a Sunday? Client A is forced to restore from a backup (if he has one) that is a week old. That's no good on a busy website.

    For me, you can never have too many backups. Low on space? Get more, don't try getting by with fewer backups.

    You only need to have a server drop dead on you once, to learn this painfully obvious lesson. Backups are your best friend when things go wrong.

    Thank you.
    My last question, I use AWS for my backups. Can my clients save their backups also on AWS?

    In cPanel > File section > Backup > click "Download a Full Website Backup", find, Backup Destination menu for some options you might not know about. I cannot properly answer your question though, I don't use AWS for anything.
