    legecy backup (cpbackup) is currently setup on our server. it generate backups weekly and monthly. my question is, is there a way to disable the system backup buttons found in every cpanel of the hosted accounts so they cant download it? it would be nice for the admin to have this option as we dont want clients to have access on our system backups..

    i tried experimenting by moving the generated files (tar.gz) to other directory. it does work... the week and monthly buttons are gone. but this proceedure kinda mess up your disk space allocation..

    any suggestions guys.. ? :)

    Hello :)

    The system backups are not going to be different compared to a backup that the user generates on their own. It's also less CPU-intensive because the archive is already generated. However, you are welcome to submit a feature request for the ability to disable/enable system backup downloads in the cPanel UI:

    Thank you.
