* Due to technical limitation, incremental backups will be created only after reaching the backup rotation limits. For a 7 days backup rotation we will keep 7 different full backups and then start pushing incremental changes.

Backup type:

  • Accounts - Copy files/folders from cPanel account that you choose to include (same as "/scripts/pkgacct").
  • Directories - Copy server files/folders that you choose to include (not necessarily related to cPanel accounts).
  • Replicate - Copy files/folders "as is".

Backup structure:

  • Incremental - Copy only files (changed or new) since the last full backup.
  • Archived - Copy files to uncompressed archive (.tar file).
  • Compressed - Copy files to compressed archive (.tar.gz file).

"Point-In-Time" Space Consuming incremental backups - If you choose more then one backup retention - JetBackup will create a "point-in-time incremental backups", in which will use as little space as possible (using hardlinks). So a 30 days backup retention, of a 2GB cPanel account, will only consume 2GB + 30 Days of new / changed files (** At the moment, mysql is fully dumped, as it doesn't support incremental backups).
