NOTICE: THIS IS OLD LEGACY DOCUMENTATION FOR JETBACKUP 3.1 (EOL), FOR THE NEWER MOST UPDATED DOCUMENTATION PLEASE VISIT: http://docs.jetbackup.com
Here you can find a brief overview about our supported backup destination types.
|Incremental Full Backup||Un/Compressed Full Backup||Singe file Resotre/Download||Generic server files backup|
! 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.
- Cpanel account backups – Copy the entires cPanel account (same as “/scripts/pkgacct”)
- Generic files / folders – Copy any files / folder on the server (not related to cPanel accounts).
- Incremental backups – Copy only files that have changed or are new since the last full incremental backup.
- “Point-In-Time” Space Consuming incremental backups – If you activated “backup rotation” – JBM will create a “point-in-time incremental backups”, in which will use as little space as possible (using hardlinks). So a 30 days backup rotation, of a 2GB cPanel account, will only consume 2GB + 30 Days of new / changed files (** At the moment, mysql is fully gzipped & dumpped, as it doesn’t support incremental backups).
