    Backup space ending.

    I've read all the documetation but I'm still confused.


    Free space for zxbackup is ending. Is there a way to "shrink" backup (move part to external location) and in the same time be able to use it in case of need to restore something old.

    Hello taliesin!

    ZeXtras Backup's store is made to be ever-consistent, and by design it's not possible to split it as this would break metadata consistency: the only way to reduce its size would be to lower the "Data Retention Policy" so that deleted items will be purged sooner from the backup, but the amount of space freed up highly depends on your users' usage habits so it might not be relevant.

    If moving the whole backup path to a larger storage device or to a a logical volume is not an option, you could initialize a brand new Backup Path moving the old one to a different storage device, but in this case you'd need to stop the RealTime Scanner and set the backup path to the old one each time you wish to perform an Undelete Restore or a Restore on New Account operation on the data in the old backup path.

    Have a nice day,
    the ZeXtras Team
