Automatic Transfer Tool (for cron job)

I'd like the Transfer Tool extending to allow for regular transfers. A full / partial / incremental backup that can be scheduled for any time / frequency. Profiles could also be saved and used.

As a server administrator I would find this option highly useful in terms of preparing for a mass migration and needing time to transfer a lot of data over slow connections, before the cut over date.

Thanks so much for your submission. I'm reviewing some of the older requests on the site and wanted to clarify yours a bit. In you mind what would be the goal of a feature like this?

cpanelbenny if i may explain my goal for this feature.. if you have a server with 500 accounts and 500GB worth of data for example, and you need to migrate this to another server, on a deadline, one of the big constraints is network speeds.. if one of the servers are limited in this aspect for any reason whatsoever, you are very likely to miss deadlines for transfers.. we are currently in this situation, and we need to manually and regularly start account transfers in order to keep data in sync and to minimize the amount of data that needs to be transferred on the day of the cutover.. while cpanel support did not believe us, it appears as though the transfer tool already does incremental transfer of files, so the only thing missing would the ability to schedule your periodic transfers until the cut over date..
