That's not what the backups are for.  Backups are for keeping a backup.  Which is clearly of everything.

If you want a separate space export, then all you have is the space export, which is a manual operation.  I'd script that with curl or something, because there's nothing for doing partial backups.

I agree with Nic, If you want individual space backups then you have to have permssions to export the individual space and import back when needed and again Scheduling a backup is for whole instance rather than single spaces.

Hi Nic and Chander, thank you. I am aware of the manual individual space xml export. We have quite a lot of spaces on our Confluence. The non functional requirement for few particular spaces requires a daily backup. It will be useful to automate the individual space xml export for this purposes rather than doing the whole site backup for all spaces. Do you have any experience on scripting this? I am new to Confluence, not sure which script in the Confluence config file does this? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
