    Hi, everyday I received a backup email from each of my dedicated server saying that backup was completed. This is very nice and I want to know where I can find them. And also how many entries are saved (like how days from today) ?

    If you have set /backup as the location in WHM > Backup > Configure Backup area, then it will be at /backup/cpbackup location for the files. As for the entries, if you have daily, weekly and monthly set to be saved, you'll have 3 copies, one for daily, one for weekly and one for monthly in the /backup/cpbackup folder.

    If you are saving the files off server to a remote FTP server instead, you'll have them saved to whatever directory you specified on that server.

    Since you haven't indicated any of your Configure Backup settings, we cannot state precisely where anything is being stored.
