Feature request: cleanup now

Hi there,

how about a button “cleanup now” in settings?

Regards, Jochen

I’d like this to. Currently my urbackup server is out of space, I’ve tweaked the number of backups to maintain, set the cleanup window to be 1-7/1-23 but cleanup isn’t running. That may or may not be a bug since I guess it may just start at a specific interval but I’d like to be able to hit a button and within a few seconds see that the cleanup is running and hopefully the crisis should be resolved. As things stand it is somewhat frustrating that my backups are down and I don’t know if I’ve done enough to fix it.


that’s a great idea. If we could choose which clients backups should be cleaned that would be pretty awesome. Thanks in advance.

Very good idea - there will be no need to wait for clean window - i want this too !

Agreed, excellent idea

Ok will add this to 1.5.

If anyone is okay with stopping the server for the cleanup this might be usefull: http://www.urbackup.org/administration_manual.html#x1-7900010.3

Great to hear that. Any ETA for the version 1.5?

That will be nice, Any idea when this feature will be included into the web interface? I am using UrBackup 2.1.19 and I cannot find this option :slight_smile:
