Local folder destination will be the fastest destination if there is no remote/local network involved.

Destination Name

A generic name for your internal ease of use, so it will be easier to recognize the backup destination roll, in case you have more than one.
Max length is 40 characters.

Choose Backup Engine

JetBackup will need to index and read files from this destination. Since each backup engine has it's own file structure, we will need to know what we are looking for in the destination when we are indexing.

If you wish to allow yourself/clients to use/restore cPanel generated backups on the JetBackup GUI choose cPanel engine.
When it comes to cPanel full incremental backup, JetBackup will index the backup to its parts(Databases, Emails etc.). Which means that you will be able to restore parts of the full backup and not only the full backup.

When you choose cPanel engine on your destination settings, you can set schedule in order to reindex those backups. It is recommended to schedule it after the cPanel backup is done so data will be most accurate.

Backup Directory

This will be our starting point when accessing this destination.
Make sure to start with "/".
Always use the absolute path, for example, /home/USERNAME/FOLDER.

Please make sure that your destination path is secure and has the appropriate privileges.

Free Disk Space Limit

This option will check if destination disk space reached the specified limit before it performs the backup. If you enable this option and available disk space is less than the amount specified, the system will not perform the backup.

Rsync Bandwidth Limit
