    Sorry for my English.
    I'm using ISPConfig on Debian 7 without problems.

    I want to move /var/backup (site backups) directoy to large USB disk for disk freeing. And i want to backup more days.

    What is the best option for this?

    Mount usb disk, and symbolic link to Usb disk etc.

    Well u can always set a mount point for your device to /var/backup
    as root
    mount /dev/yourblockdevice /var/backup

    Note: once u do this you will have your USB disk mounted on /var/backup BUT you wont see previous backups that were stored in that folder. So my advice is to copy all the files in /var/backup to your USB drive and then mount it. Thats how you will see all the backups old and new on your USB drive

    Yes, you are right.

    I have to think something different.
