Huge backup directory

Dear all,

I found a strange behaviour in /var/lib/nethserver/backup diretory.

Inside this dir there are 2 sub-dir /restic and /restore that are quite big (14,4 GB and 930 MB). Is possible to delete the content of these directories? And also, why restic saves data inside this directory?


Thank you for your support

NethServer Version: 7.9.2009

Hello! Can someone help me?

Thank you

That’s restic local cache.
You can delete it, but it will be recreated on next backup.

Thank you for feedback!

My root disk is not big (about 50 gb); do you think that is possible (and safe) mount /var/lib/nethserver/backup in another partiion or disk?

Does your installation use another mountpoint for other uses?

Yes, you can safely move it to another partition or just try to delete the oldest one with a cron job :slight_smile:

Thank you!
