Doc1 Designer V5/6 - Filestore backup zip growing exponentially


 

Issue

Each time a repository backup is created, the filestore backup is growing exponentially in size

Cause

This is typically caused because the user has set the location for the filestore backup to be the filestore folder itself, rather than an alternate location.

When this happens, the backup tool simply zips up the entire content of the filestore folder, which includes the zip files from previous backup(s), so effectively, you are getting nested backup zip files.

 

Resolution

UPDATED: April 3, 2017
Ensure that your backup path for the filestore zip is NOT the filestore folder itself.
