  1. Option to add specific files or directories to add backup

    The current backup tool has a great option to exclude specific files from backup. Thats a great feature to have. My suggestion would be have a similar option in which an administrator can specify files or directories to include backups.

    Use case:
    As a server administrator I use custom settings for certain services like Roundcube, Postfix, Dovecot and SpamAssasin. I like to add the custom configuration files from these services to my backup in case of a sever recovery or server migration.

    No need for Plesk to also restore those files. I'll do that manually. Just an option include specify…

  4. Add multiple S3 Backup destination/locations

    It would be interesting to be able to have multiple S3-compatible storages configured at a time, so that multiple backup destinations can be used.

  5. Allow configuring additional storage for Acronis Backup extension users

    Acronis allows setting up additional storages for backups https://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/documentation/AcronisCyberCloud/#managing-locations-and-storage.html

    Currently, the way Plesk defines integration with Acronis, Acronis extensions users can't do this.

  6. Change the backup structure so all files and directories regarding one backup are located in one archive

    It'd be easier for to have a directory created for each backup instead of having all the files in, for example, /var/lib/psa/dumps/.
    For example, I'd like to have a structure like this:
    backup_2011300010.tgz that contains all the files and directories for this backup.

  7. Partial backup removal

    It would be useful to be able to remove from a server-wide backup only particular domain's data (such as mailbox accounts) as it will help to manage server's disk space in a more efficient way and store only needed data

  9. Do not store backups restored from a remote backup location(FTP,SFTP)

    Currently, restored backups, which have been downloaded from a remote storage, are being stored locally and appear in the backups list and become part of a backup process.
    Expected behavior:
    Download, restore & delete downloaded backup files. Remove from the backup list.

  11. 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.

  14. Allow direct access to Backup Manager from Files tab.

    It's a nuisance having to go back to the main page to do a backup after uploading new or revised files.
