Hello guys, can anyone teach me how to backup all the file in the cloud server? I have zero knowledge about the cloud storage but I do know how does the website hosting works, can it be like website hosting we can download all the backup file from the FTP?

Expect please guide me, thank you!

The most-complete way would be to take a snapshot of the droplet (or enable backups). At this time you cannot download snapshots or backups from the system.

If the requirement is to download a copy of the backup you can look into things like rsync, bacula, or good old fashioned tar & gz.
