I work for a school running Retrospect 8 on an Apple 10.6.8 server (set up by a prior IT person who is no longer here). This server backs up the other servers and the backups are stored on an attached Drobo. The backups had not been working for a while and upon investigation the internal HD of the server was filling up each night when the backups occurred. I researched and moved the Catalog folder to the Drobo, assuming that was getting large. That worked for a few days but now we're getting the disk full warnings at night again, though when I check the next morning there's plenty of free space so there must be temporary files clogging things up. My Google-Fu is escaping me. We have about 120 GBs free on the internal drive, but every night when the backups attempt to run that internal drive fills up and then empties again. I'd like to move any files that expand greatly in size during backup to the Drobo (which has several TB's free and is set up in a mirrored RAID). My current suspicions lie with Config80.dat, Config80.bak and RtrExec.dir which all live in their default location of /Library/Application Support/Retrospect. Which of those do you think is causing this and can I move them to the Drobo?
Thanks so much for your help!!
