When does a full backup occur?

I’ve been running for 24 days now and have one full backup and 23 incrementals.

I can’t see a way to force or configure a periodic full backup?

It will do it on it’s own as needed.

That could be, subject to the amount of data to backup, a high ressources coonsuming task then, before to proceed recommended to take a snapshot of your server.

  • To delete OLD encrypted backup files if stored locally, use:
    rm /home/user-data/backup/encrypted/*

  • To manually recreate a new full encrypted backup use:
    /root/mailinabox/management/backup.py --full

I think its once a month *old files tell me ‘deleted in x days’ …
after that a new full backup is made.
