Create Backup On Demand

Backup on Demand gives you the ability to create a point-in-time full account snapshot of your account. On-demand backups are useful right before making any upgrades/changes to your account. If necessary, you can conveniently roll back to the recent on-demand backup instead of restoring the last scheduled backup.

This section is disabled by default and is set by your hosting provider. Please visit Permissions for more information. In order to enable Backup on Demand for the End User, please ensure Backup on Demand is enabled in the Admin Settings -> Backup on Demand.

View Downloads

View and access generated backup downloads.


View and manage queued JetBackup processes (restores and downloads) associated with your account along with the status (Completed, Failed, Cancelled, Pending, Processing). For resellers, this includes accounts under your ownership as well.
