    Do I want to enable this? Is it worth it? Are there any disadvantages such as a lot more disk usage?

    Thanks!

    Well I think it's a matter of personal preference. If you read the blurb:

    This feature turns on a build archiving and restoration facility, allowing the server administrator to "roll back" their cPanel installation to previous build. All files are stored on the server.

    So, if this really does work it could be a life saver on a botched update. Its very rare people have to rollback but we have seen it happen in the past. How good are you at digging into the operating system, editing config files manually, reinstalling programs without a GUI, figuring out where libraries are, etc..

    If you can find out how much space might be needed for a roll back and if you have that space to spare AND are not very comfortable with the O/S at the command prompt level then turning it one seems to be a good idea.
