You may notice your automatic backups taking up a significant amount of space on your account, if this is the case, you can take control of your backups and turn off automatic backup if you so wish. Be aware if your account is corrupted, this could cause problems, but we'll also show you how to backup your site on your own time.
First login to your account and navigate to your "Applications".
Turning Off Backups
First, select "My Apps".
Then select the site you want to change your backup settings on by clicking on the top headline.
Scroll down on the settings and turn off "Automatic Update Backup".
You'll also want to select "Do not automatically maintain backups".
Lastly, select "Save All".
Backup On Your Own
Now you can still back up your site (which is again recommended) but on your own time. All you need to do is click on the arrow back on your "My Apps" page.
The first backup option is saving to your current site.
Or you can select "Add a new backup location". Two easy options synced with DoOO are Google Drive or Dropbox for example. How you backup is up to you.
