Hi @elisandrafantasiascarol,

If I understood you correctly, you are asking if you can Backup only a certain amount of files as oppose to backing up your whole Droplet?

Unfortunately, DigitalOcean does not have a feature to allow backing up only a number of files. DigitalOcean offers two types of backups - Backups and Snapshots

  • Backups are automatically-created disk images of Droplets. Enabling backups for Droplets enables system-level backups at weekly intervals, which provides a way to revert to an older state or create new Droplets.

  • Snapshots are on-demand disk images of DigitalOcean Droplets and volumes saved to your account. Use them to create new Droplets and volumes with the same contents.

Backing up a couple of files should be done manually. You can back them up on your Local Laptop or use a different solution for backing up files.
