SFTP will allow you to download backups as needed, though you could also use SCP if the machine you’re wanting to download to is running Linux. If you’re on a Windows machine, SFTP using FileZilla is probably going to be the easiest method.

You’d simply login to the Droplet that stores the backups using SFTP, navigate the the storage directory and then double-click to download.

Your backups should be stored to the directory below, unless you changed the storage path during setup.
