NethServer Version: 7
Module: Backup

After updating Nethserver two days ago, I’m obtaining a backup error.

Extract from log file /var/log/backup-data.log:

My backup is on Webdav.

Hello @federico.ballarini,

you may just try a full backup and see if incremental backups work afterwards or you may cleanup duplicity as described here:

duplicity cleanup [options] [–force] [–extra-clean] target_url

Don’t use “–force” at first try, because it may throw away your data backups…

How much ram and swap do you have?
And how many files?
duplicity needs some ram per file to backup.
Looking at Graphs, do you see your swap full when the backup is running?


Restore files from gui is empty

It was a RAM problem.
Thanks.
