    Hi,
    I just enabled WHM Back up and enabled this for a few Cpanel accounts. I set this also to be stored in /backup as default in Backup Config.

    But everytime a new account will be created, the backup will be enabled automatically on that account.
    I only want want to enable the backup to selected Cpanel accounts only and not to newly created accounts.
    How can I do this?

    Also, if I disabled a Cpanel account from creating backup automatically, do I need to delete the stored backups of that Cpanel accounts manually? How can I delete the backup files created for me to fee some space.

    Thanks.

    You will have to delete backups manually. Suppose if you have stored backups under /backup and wish to remove backup of account abc then
    cd /backup

    Locate the backup file of account 'abc' by ll | grep abc.* and simply remove it by rm command
