    Hi,

    When I do a rsync remote back up destination with cPanel backups. Does it copy just the changed files to the remote server?

    The load seems to spike pretty high for just the changed files.

    With the folder name changing to the new date could that could trigger all files being transferred each time?

    Hello @WebHostPro,

    Are you using the Compressed/Uncompressed backup type, or the Incremental backup type?

    With Incremental, only new or modified files (managed through MetaData) should transfer to the remote backup destination via Rsync. Hard links are utilized to avoid duplicating unmodified files. Rsync is currently the only remote destination type that's compatible with incremental backups.

    With Compressed or Uncompressed, the full backups are staged locally and transported to the remote destination during each new backup generation. The feature request on the link below is relevant:

    Full remote backup support with rsync

    Thank you.

    Cool yes I use rsync for the server back ups and rsync for the remote back up.

    Sounds good! And I liked the link, that would be even better!
