Set Up: Partial Backup using Backup Wizard in cPanel

In addition to full website backups, cPanel also allows you to backup smaller individual portions of your website. For example, if you only want to backup your web files, you can perform a partial backup of the Home Directory.

Types of Partial Backups

There are three types of partial backups you can perform:
