By default websites and database backups can be stored on Amazon S3 | Simple Cloud Storage Service. You can choose from 15 AWS S3 regions when setting up your backup schedule or when creating an on-demand backup.
Default storage is charged at $0.05/GB/Month. We measure your storage usage in “TimedStorage-ByteHrs,” which are added up at the end of the month to generate your monthly charges. This comes to about ~$0.000068 per GB per Hour. This pricing doesn't apply to your own connected storage, server and volume backups. Storage pricing is in Canadian Dollars.
You can store your website and database backups directly to your Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, AWS S3 and Google Cloud Storage. You have the flexibility to customize storage backend on each backup schedule.
BACKUPS/SNAPSHOTS OF CLOUD SERVERS ARE STORED WITHIN YOUR HOSTING PROVIDER ACCOUNT AND NOT COUNTED TOWARD USAGE.
IMPORTANT: BackupSheep doesn't request full access to your Google Drive or Dropbox account. When you connect your storage account then BackupSheep APIs can only access files/folders created by BackupSheep.
Please note that storage service may not support all features. Please see the table below.

Storage options are set at schedule level. So you can have multiple schedules with different storage locations set for one website or database. For example, If you want to backup your website nightly on Dropbox and Google Drive then you can create two schedules with Dropbox and Google Drive accounts selected under storage option.
You can't change storage location on an existing schedule. However, you can always delete the existing schedule and add a new one.
