Multiple backup rules or more options
At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.
I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.
Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
[n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
[n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
[n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)
So, if someone picks daily backups from 2 days, but also wants a 1 monthly backup, the script makes daily backups and deletes every backup older than 2 days except 1 monthly backup. This way it doesn't make double work - backup for daily backups and backup for monthly backups.
Hi all, Thanks for your input, really appreciate this! As you know, in Plesk Onyx 17.8 we made a significant improvement that allows you to use several cloud storages or even SFTP for remote backups. In Plesk Onyx 17.9 we will continue to improve Plesk Backup Manager in general and Flexible Backup Scheduler Manager in particular.
Based on the initial description and comments I can highlight 3 scenarios in the scope of this request:
#1. Keep Daily & Weekly & Monthly backups at the same time: (Example: 2 weeks of daily backups + weekly backups by each Monday)
#2. Backup to different storages (like daily to FTP and monthly to Google Drive)
#3. Multiple Storages of the same type (like 2 different FTP servers)

At the minimum, can we at least get an option to back up more than once per day? That seems like a trivial thing to build out.

3 years and no updates
Please add a "hourly backup to Google Drive" option. Making remote backups every 24 hours is not good enough.
Alexis Gaitan commented
2022 and this option still not implemented? no way! how we can schedule automatic backup but excluding some domains? theres no option ? really?

This feature seems highly awaited by many users. Indeed, in an era of ransomware and potential incidents, it is paramount to have replicated and encrypted backups in an easy manner.
I totally support this feature.
John Shiells commented
how many votes and months need to pass before something being highly asked for gets done.
Costin Raducanu commented
This feature would be definitely useful !
Any custom workarounds would be avoided (like writing your own scripts to run from crontab) and would be manageable from same single interface.
I fully support for all three scenarios
Definitely be nice to have more backup options, I fully support all 3 proposals
Maybe it comes with Plesk Smaragd :-D
Hope this will come soon. It‘s planned since 3 years? Why does it take so long? It‘s such an important thing to have…
For which century is this feature planned?
I would like to be able to pass the info to my descendants!

I had a failure in the backup, now I have to restore some of the data that was lost. What is the best way to do this? Can I use RAID Recovery https://www.diskinternals.com/raid-recovery/ or similar software?
K. Devlin commented
These tips were very useful to me, after I had to set up a backup, after a long time restoring files.
Oleg Burca commented
So annoying you have to build custom bicycles for so simple things!
Can you just add the possibility to have multiple backup schedules and some flexibility for retention policies?
Is it really so difficult?
Why is it taking that long.... we are all waiting for this...

I am waiting too for this feature.
7 years waiting for this.
Please add the possibility for multiple remote backup locations :)! Would add a second layer of security :)...
