Export JB Config

This option enables "JetBackup configuration" backup(s) which is required to perform critical JetBackup operations such as "Disaster Recovery" and recovering from database corruption.

"JetBackup configuration" backup(s) are lightweight and are executed daily for up to 7 retained snapshots.

This backup is encrypted using the Master Private Key and is highly recommended to keep the key on a secure remote location (such as a password management software).

On top of your Export JB config enabled destination(s), JetBackup also has an "Automated Daily DR Export" executed during the daily cron and is stored locally at: `/usr/local/jetapps/usr/jetbackup/dailybackup`.

JetBackup will continue to raise an alert until "Export JB config" is enabled on at least one destination and the alerts are acknowledged.

Hide/UnHide Snapshots

This option allows you to set the visibility of backups/snapshots stored on the destination.
When enabled, the backups from the destination will not be visible on the end-user's cPanel Plugin Interface.
