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.

  • Como posso fazer um backup no computador local, não encontrei nada na documentação sobre como proceder, por exemplo: Faço um backup para poder acessar no Computador local, fazer alteração nesses arquivos tudo isso na máquina.

    • Hi @elisandrafantasiascarol,

      This time, Google Translate didn’t translate the above really good so I’m not sure about the comment but what I understood is that you want to have a local backup?

      If that’s the case, you need to do it on your own. DigitalOcean do not provide a local backup feature out of the box. You can just use a SCP or RSYNC command to copy the files you want to your local machine via SSH.
