Hi,
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.

Thanks!
Jim

Hi,

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.

Greetings

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..
