    I'm not sure why cPanel recently added this but it's quite annoying. When I transfer accounts from one server to another for whatever reason, the customer always wants an updated version of his website, not a day old version (or more).

    Can we get this box unchecked by default?

    Where exactly do you see this option, I can't find it here. Never heard of it. Can you grab a screenshot?

    Thanks!

    Do you mean "Use incremental backups speed-up"?

    That will get latest version though.

    That's not what this feature actually does.

    It uses the backup as a head start, and then looks for files and databases that have been modified since that backup was made, then transfers those updated items.
