s/optionnal/optional/.  I had never heard of "historization", but
apparently it should be singular "version" h11n.

The client "watches for" changes, and "sends" them.

Now on with the templates:

You can't throw "hexadecimal" in the middle of "account number"; it
has to be "a hexadecimal account number".

Make that "leave _this_ field blank".

Again s/an/a/, plus s/e.g./such as/, but these are also poor
examples; 1E04 looks too much like a decimal value in scientific
notation, and 4500 could equally well be decimal.  The example in
"man bbstoreaccounts" is 75AB23C, so clearly it doesn't need to be
four-digit.  But for now I'll just change it to "1F04 or 4500".

"The" TCP port 2201?  Hmmm... well, rearrange it:

   The client will connect to the server on TCP port 2201.

"Mention" implies "incidentally"; and "to backup" should probably be
"to back up", or indeed "to be backed up":

   Please give a space-separated list of directories to be backed up onto the
   remote server.

Confusing use of "not... some"; I'd suggest:

   These directories should not contain mounted file systems at any level
   in their subdirectories.

That's "scans of directories", or just "directory scans".

Just "an integer", or perhaps "an integer value".  (How does this
one respond to 0?)

What I've got is:
   To enable RAID, the directory names should be a space-separated list of
   three partitions, each on different physical hard drives (for example:
  '/raid/0.0 /raid/0.1 /raid/0.2').

Surplus "in", and again reverting s/e.g./for example:/

Compare previous[*]; no need for the second "a" (it could even be
"the corresponding").

Another one where for some reason you can't have "number" on the
end:
   The block size must be a power of two, such as 1024 or 4096.

My patch seems also to have accidentally trimmed EOL/EOF whitespace.

Description: client for the BoxBackup remote backup system
 BoxBackup is an automatic on-line backup system.
 The client watches for changes on the local filesystem,
 connects to a BoxBackup server and sends the changes via a
 secure channel. All data is encrypted before being sent to
 the server. A command-line tool is provided for restoration
 of backups including deleted files and old versions.
