  1. Enable additional Schedule Backup with or without Full Backup

    Enable additional Schedule Backup and provide an option to disable the obligation to make a Full Backup (letting user the option to create additional Incremental Backups, without messing things like repeated Full Backups). This already happends if the Admin and Client both setup Backups, it create multiple Full Backups which is not necessary since Admin Backups are create in behalf user.

  2. 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.

  5. 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).

  6. Comments for FTP backups

    May it could be great for a next release of Plesk, that comments could be display in the backups list from the start! Correctly comments for backups on the remote FTP server can not be viewed.

  7. Backup Extension for Google Cloud / Amazon Glacier

    Plesk does currently only support Amazon S3. Amazon Glacier is cheaper than S3 and also good for backups. Also support for Google Cloud would be great since at the moment, Plesk does only support Google Drive which is no professional backup (example: https://github.com/plesk/ext-cloud-backup-example).

  8. 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.

  9. 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. backup

    Please enter the percentage of database restore in progress ... it is very frustrating to restore without knowing either the time left or the totality of kbytes transferred and remaining, with progress a bar
    Thank you

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  20. 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.
