I have been using UrBackup Server (2.5.32) on Linux with Windows 11, 10 and Linux clients. Once I do a clean install it works fine. But when I have to reboot the server, I try to stop any backups running of course it will not stop them. I try to wait until it finishes. If something happens the server goes down UrBackup is toast. If you reboot the server Urbackup is toast, very few times I can reboot and it will not destroy UrBackup server. I have never been able to get the system to run right again after reboots. I end up having to reinstall.
Next issue, Datto on linux. It constantly leaves snapshots behind and fills up the filesystem. I can’t seem to find any documentation on how to remove them without trashing the filesystem then nothing works again.
Any ideas on how to keep this working so I don’t have to delete all the backups and start over each time would be great. The product is great when it works, but when it gets confused the only way to fix it is delete it all and start again. It would be nice to have documents that cover basic repair and cleanup. That is not a good solution when you have backups you need to keep. Is there a way to import the backups if you have to reinstall? There has to be a better solution than reinstall!
