  1. Serverwide scheduled backups -> UI to select what is contained

    I'd really like to have a UI to select what is contained in a serverwide scheduled backup.
    We have a couple of domains where people dump photos and videos for further processing, amounting to 100s of GBs, and we don't need backups of those.
    The UI you got for the restore dialog would be just fine.
    I think it makes more sense to select what is contained, than what to exclude.

  4. R1Soft server backup manager

    R1 Soft SBM is a stable and effective way of backing up the full server, and per user / per domain accounts. It is long overdue for support in PLESK, in the same way (and for the same reasons) that other major control panels already implement it.

  5. Remove Local Backups Automatically after a Restoration

    When you want to Restore a Backup from FTP, first this backup it's downloaded to the Local Plesk Server and then the restoration starts.

    At the end of the restoration process, the Local Backup it's still there, maybe it's better to save this space deleting this Local Backup and maintain only the FTP backup which was downloaded.

  8. Add ability to check backup duration and when the task has been completed

    Backup task may increase server load. In order to balance it, it is required understand how long task has been running.
    Currently it is possible to check only from log files, which is not very convenient. Please, add ability to simply check this info in Plesk UI.

  11. Add option to Resellers can to restore data from Administrator's full backup on FTP

    In Plesk reseller can restore data from a full backup created by Plesk administrator. Currently, the backup created to FTP storage can be restored only by its creator.

    Add option to Resellers to restore data from the Administrator's full backup stored on FTP.

  12. Add ability to obtain information about Backup Settings via CLI.

    Please, add a feature to be able to check Backup manager settings (including Scheduled backup settings), server-wide and for the particular domain via CLI. It would be very convenient for server administration to get information about backup settings in one place: for example, if there are multiple domains with different settings.

  16. Do not include the huge Plesk mobile log file in server backup

    Since I installed the "Plesk mobile" extension, my daily server backup via Plesk (only configuration and e-mails) is much larger than before and gets larger every day! There is a log file called "MobileConnector.log" in that backup and this file currently is 150 MB in size (it increases by about 50 MB per month).

    I would like to have an option to exclude this file. As it's part of an extension, this log file cannot be excluded via the checkbox "Exclude logfiles"! This option is not even visible, because I do not backup user files.
