I’ve had a hunt through Google and the results I can find there but I’m still unable to easily recover from a NAS getting full.
My backup has failed due to “Failed: There is not enough space on the disk.”… I guess I was too optimistic over how many versions I could fit on a disk.
Once in this state how do I fix it so it runs. If I change the versions down to, for example, 4, I still get the same error when I click run.
If I delete some random old files from the NAS (as I tried the last time the disk got full) then all hell breaks loose and it is easier to just delete everything and start the backup from fresh! (note: Don’t delete old files from backup sets manually!).
I even attempted to follow some forum post about running a command line to delete snapshots older than $date but I couldn’t get it to work. The command would take ages to run but never delete anything.
What is the simplest way to get the backup into normal working state again? Can I set a flag for it to just delete whatever old versions can no longer fit on the disk?
Sorry if this seems like something that is already answered somewhere else - if it is please link me to it… I’ve failed to find it in my searching.
