  1. Bakup log rotation

    Plesk does not rotate backup logs and we needs to delete them by manual.
    Backup log might be very big, therefore Plesk should rotate backup logs automatically to prevent oppression of disc capacity by increasing backup logs.

  6. add bzip2/xz compression support for backups

    Would be nice to have the option to choose other compression formats for backups, especially bzip2 or xz. To reduce compression time, parallel implementations can be used (pbzip2 and pxz). Additionally there should be an option to set compression level (1-9).

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  17. Give better information regarding backups created in higher level.

    When a customer in Plesk removes a subscription-level backup which is a part of full-server backup (or reseller's backup and some customer's backup in case of special rights), it is not displayed anymore in subscription's backup manager. However, it is not actually removed from the server. This confuses customers because they are not aware of what actually occupies so much disk space.

    Feature suggestion: make some note/banner in customer's backup manager to inform them that there are some backups which were created on a higher level.
    Or
    Prevent backup deletion if created at an higher level.
