Where is the eTigons cPanel backup tool?
The backup tool that is provided by cPanel is very resource intensive, that often causes outages to other customers due to high I/O usage during the compression of files. This was disabled for the best interest of service uptime and reliability. eTigons takes nightly backups that are retained for 24 hours for disaster recovery purposes only. This is intended strictly in the case of emergencies, such as file system failures or mass data loss as a result of a system failure. It is strongly recommended and is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they maintain accurate and up-to-date backups of their web site files, databases and e-mails.
