I’ve been meaning to deal with the backup files since setting up the MIAB instance. In typical fashion I’m forced into dealing with it due to limited disk space rather than mitigating the risk of losing them due to failure.
From the admin Control Panel I can see my full backup appears to be taken once a month with incremental daily until the next full. These happen at 03:57 every morning.
So the question is: If I schedule an overnight process to follow the backup is it best to move the backed up files off the MIAB server (thereby freeing up space) or simply copy the whole directory, leaving them all in place?
I’d like to automate via a script or job from my NAS to pull the files via SFTP or similar.
Thanks in advance.
