Hello,

If you would like to download a zile backup file located on your droplet you can download it using sFTP via FileZilla. You can connect using your root ssh credentials on port 22

You can check the following tutorials:

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.

/var/lib/backuppc/pc/

Use SFTP.
