  1. 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.

  3. 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

  4. Adding functionality to restore a non-existing domain or subscription from a server-wide Plesk backup

    I suggest adding functionality to restore a domain or subscription from a server-wide backup on the Plesk server, where this domain or subscription is missing (for example, it was deleted before). This is very inconvenient when you have to create a nonexistent subscription, then restore it, and then separately restore the domain in it.

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  8. Allowing the clients restoring the backups on the remote server via FTPS

    Add to Plesk functionality to allow the clients to restore the backups on the remote server via FTPS.
    The administrator can create backups and clients can restore their own parts of backups. As how it is done with common backups on local storage

  10. 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. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. Adding feasibility of downloading backup files via download management applications

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to download backup files via applications such as internet download manager now, and this can be the reason of some problems for users (Failing downloads and repeating them) and hosts (ٌWasting bandwidth and other resources of servers).

  20. Separate rotation for backups hosted in clouds

    When on Plesk server there is not much space, and on clouds (like Amazon S3), there is a lot - the separate rotation for backups would be useful: to set on Plesk to rotate frequently, and in the cloud - far more rarely.
