Just wondering what most people think are best practices around splitting up backup files and why? We have a +/- 600GB mail DB. Storage is not an issue.

we have about 2TB of MailStorage and we do not use the backup feature. We replicate the whole store via btrfs-snapshots + rsync to a different location. This is the most efficient backup method.

I have the same question. It seems like the default setting is to split the files into 2GB chunks. We've been using these default settings on several installs for some years now and it works fine. We just used the kmsrecover tool to move to a new server machine using 13 segmented zip files as per the default settings, and it worked like a charm. I can't see that splitting the files is related to storage constraints, as you would need adequate storage for the entire backup set.

We decreased the size to 512mb and the backup times dropped..

Hi !

sorry it's an old thread but I would like my system not splitting up my backup files, my storage is able to manage very big files and this feature is unnecessary for me and with all these files I find it confusing, I would a lot prefer every backup using only one file.
I tried thru the web interface to disable this setting but it is not allowed, I tried to increase the size but it is no allowed neither...
Apparently the only thing we can do is asking for even more little files but that's all...

Please if someone achieve to disable this setting can you tell how ?

Thank you in advance
