  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Add the possibility to check the content of a backup

  11. 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).

  13. Plesk should recognize the failure of backup at FTP Storage as an emailable error.

    In Scheduled Backup settings, you can tick; "if errors occur during the execution of this backup tasks send a notification email to...". However, if the backup is set up to go to FTP Storage and the FTP site can't be reached, the backup is done to the Server Storage and no error email is sent. This is a problem because if a few days of backups intended for FTP Storage fail and go to Server Storage, contracted server space could be exceeded causing Plesk to suspend / disable the site.

    Plesk should complete the backup to the Server Storage, but…
