The "Linux Home Directories" option allows you to replicate and restore the regular Linux accounts located in the /home directory.

5. Follow the remaining steps as shown in Adding Control Panel Instances.

6. After the verification, click "Save" to add your Linux Home Directory Instance to the Policy.

7. The added Control Panel Instance will appear on the "Control Panels" tab of the "Edit Policy" window. Instance options are displayed in the appropriate columns.

9. Once you have added the Linux Home Directory Instance to the Policy, the system will display a direct link to the Backup Manager for Control Panel users in the "Login" column. Using the link, users can access their backups and restore data as a .zip or .tar file. To log in, they must use their Control Panel credentials.
