C: Drive shrinking in size

Post by lolash »


Can someone please tell me why my C: Drive on my server is shrinking in size please, the backup is as follows:

FTP Backup
Backing up 67Gb of data to a NAS Drive in a remote location.

When the backup is running and adding files which i gather is before the upload, where do these files get added to ? is this the reason for my C:Drive getting smaller in size?

I need to reform my C: Drive back to it's original size before i attempted this, can someone tell me how to do this please ?

Many Thanks in Advance

If you create a zipped backup, the backup zip file is created locally in a temporary folder on your C: drive.
The temporary folder is deleted after that. Please check the temporary folder location to see if there are large files.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
