I don't think you should implement this based on popularity. It. Should. Just. Be. Implemented.
Thanks for your input, we understand the importance. This Feature request is registered in our tracking system as PPM-344 and it will be included into future Plesk versions. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features. Thanks in advance!jibs commented
Very much looking forward to this feature.
For the time being I think it would be good to update the misleading 'Backup security settings' wording, which imply that the entire backup is being password protected. Which is not correct.
This is what it currently reads:
For security reasons, we recommend that you protect data contained in backups. By default, all backups are encrypted with the Plesk's internal encryption key, which is unique for each Plesk installation. Note that the backups encrypted with such a key can be restored only in the Plesk installation where they were created, and cannot be restored in another Plesk installation. Therefore, we recommend using a password for protecting backup files.
