Is it possible to backup a server to an external disk, move this disk to a data centre, copy the disk to a server and change fbackup from local backup to a network backup whiteout losing the fbackup file? So I can continue the incremental backup over the internet.

Hope to hear.

Yes, you can do that.

After the backup to external drive you need to delete the backup job from FBackup and open it from the network drive. The backup job will be recreated in FBackup.
