    Hi you all,
    When I use plesk back up utility to back up accounts, The back up creates to different files which I know one of them is the actual backup.
    1- What is the other one and do I really need this other file to restore accounts????

    2- The back up utility by default wants to save back up in a folder named backup within the plesk directory. Would it be ok to save it somewhere else like a folder in *mydocuments*???

    I'm not so sure about question 1 but for question 2 you can put the backup file wherever you would like.

    1. Plesk backup file has some limits:
    1. Size limit.
    2. Files limits that have packed in this backup.

    If any of these limits are exceeded new backup is created by adding a number suffix to end of backup file name.
    2. You can store backup files anywhere you want.
