Is there a possibility to do a “partial” prune? My situation is that for #reasons that are unimportant, I have a backup hosted on Backblaze/B2, and a prune will take about 7 days to complete.
I don’t mind spending the time to do it, but I’d like to not have to rely on a machine being “up” that long; I’m in the SE US, and we’re hurricane/tropical storm season, so we have higher than normal network and power outages now.
Is there a way to “partially” prune so that I could do some of that every so often?
Possible other solution - if a prune gets interrupted for some reason, does the next invocation pick up where it left off, or does it have to start over; if so then it may not matter for me.
Possible other solution # 2 - I can “prune” from any machine that has the right auth to the backup repo, right? I don’t need to do it from the machine that is being backed up? If that’s the case I can also spin up a cheap cloud VM, run the prune from there, and kill it when done - they have a better chance of not dying due to network or power issues than anything I run from home.
