Allow manual backups when backup system is disabled

Auto backups are disabled on our server currently, but I would like to manually create a backup file of a user into the current directory with v-backup-user - yet it refuses with Error: BACKUP_SYSTEM is not enabled.

Is there no flag to override this, or how about making the script aware of whether it is called automatically or manually somehow?

Delete the cronjob and it should work fine for manual backups

won’t it be recreated on upgrade?

No, not that I am aware of at least
