Hi there,

In case that you are referring to the S3 Spaces storage, I could suggest using one of these tools:

Hope that this helps!

Hey @b7106c93a09547cb932731258656bf,

DigitalOcean provides two kind of tools to backup your Droplet - Snapshots and Backups

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

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.

There are no other services provided to do a clone or backup of your systems.

Anyway, for your exact specification, yes you can create a php script/api that backups up your folders however you’ll need to create it on your own.
