I’m using Workspace on Centos 7. I’ve noticed following:
- I create backup using control panel and place backup file in Documents (Common)
- Once I download backup file from documents I delete it (from web interface)
- After checking on filesystem, file is still there
For each backup that I perform, without manually removing *.gz backup file from filesystem, previous backup file is included in new backup. Meaning, I create backup today ‘localhost-dd-mm-yyyy_hh-mm.tar.gz’ with size of 5 GB.
I download backup file locally and delete it from documents module.
Next week I perform backup again, new backup file size is 10 GB, and it includes new files (5GB) and previously deleted backup file (5GB) that remains on filesystem for example in /Data/…/files_4000/file_3557/v1/content.gz.
In one month, when performing weekly backup, backup file size grows from 5 GB to 40+ GB.
Workaround is to delete files from filesystem manually after each backup and after deleting it from Documents module, but this is something that I suppose should not be so by design.
All advice and help appreciated.
