I’m new here. When I look at a mounted repo I see that it’s organised like
Sometimes my data moves around a bit, e.g. the host changes but also the path. I was pretty happy to see the effect of deduplication on this. I created the first backup in the repo from my existing backup server (a simple nightly mirror copy), then I ran a backup from the production machine and even though the paths and hosts were different (paths:
/backup/server1/var/www on my backup machine, and
/var/www on the prod machine) it ran through quickly because it recognised the data as the same.
However, it leaves me with a path (as shown when mounted) like
hosts/oldbackupserver/backup/server1/... that I’m not sure how to delete. I know it’s not taking up much space but it could be confusing later on.
Is there a way to specify a storage path, like you can in rsync (
-R from memory) so that two hosts that have the data in two locations could store it in the same place? Feel free to tell me this is not a good idea
And is there a way to delete unwanted hosts or paths?
