    Hey, @itisilefunk! Customized backup location isn't supported yet in 1Password 7, but it is something we plan to implement in a future update. Right now, they will all go to %LOCALAPPDATA%\1Password\Backups or they can be easily access in 1Password > Settings > Backup in 1Password 7. If you'd like to have them off your local hard drive as well, I'd recommend setting your backup system to back up that folder specifically. We generally don't recommend backing up the app itself since your data is stored separately, but backing up that folder will ensure you've got backups somewhere other than your hard drive and won't cause any trouble. :+1:
