Hi I would like fibaro to develop a non disruptive backup process.that doesn't require a reboot of the system. If this could be developed then it would enable a backup task to be regularly scheduled at a cadence set by the user. Finally if auto-backups were enabled, we would need some type of life cycle management for the backups so the backup drive doesn't run out of space. A solution here could be as simple as a check box to retain the last X number of backups Thanks for considering _af
Hi, I was having a number of small nagging issues with my HC2 and then I had a backup fail. Just prior to the backup fail I was remotely connected to my HC2 working on a VD and I noticed that my changes weren't being saved. I put this down to a system glitch or remote connection issue and this is what prompted me to do a backup and re-boot. The backup failed to completed and I completed a recovery/ backup restore and this was successful. I was adding back in the few scene and vd changes I have made over the last few days and I noticed that I couldn't create a new VD either from new or through the import capability. I was speaking to @Jamie mccrostie on a related issue and it was suggested that he shouldn't have any more that 6 or 8 backups depending on the size of the system. I checked my backup list and I had close to 50 backups that was consuming around 72% of my storage. I deleted the number of backups to 4 and after a reboot the amount of free space had increased as expected. . I also noticed that the response of the UI seemed better after this activity but I also noticed that I was now able to create Virtual devices again. My own take is that the large amount of backups I had caused the backup to fail and also impacted my ability to modify / create / import virtual devices. It also seemed to impact the overall web UI performance .. so If you have system issues or problems with vd/backups it may be worth checking your number of backups and how much space that is taking..... hope this helps somebody _f UPDATE: I also had an issue including 2 new aeotec smart switch's. I tried several times and they included as ID 0 or failed to include. I tried again this evening and they included first time without issue. I believe that this 'inability to include' is also related to the large amount of backups
