    Hi,

    New to all of this, please forgive me..

    I setup my backup schedule in "Configure Backups" within WHM. Compression = enabled.

    I manually ran backups using "/scripts/cpbackup" command over SSH.

    When I look in backup directory all of the accounts are backed up into individual folders. Each folder has a lot of other folders within it eg "bandwidth", "homedir", "quota" etc...

    How do I make the backup script give me one tar.gz for each account?

    Thankyou

    Were backups set to incremental previously? If yes you might clear the old backups and generate new ones.

    /scripts/cpbackup --force
