clear all backup files and users from Cumminity Edition Server

Post by gerards » Sep 13, 2019 2:50 pm

So i understand the CE Edit. is limited to 10 users and 1 TB.
Suppose i allready backupped 600GB, but now i want to backup some other users files which would cause me to go OVER the 1TB limit.

How do i clear ALL my backup files so i would stay within the CE Edit. License limitation of the 10user / 1 TB.

Kind Regards
Gerards

Hi Gerard,

You can remove the unneeded data from the repository using PowerShell.

Thanks!

WOW! not a realy easy way, what's wrong with:
right click on the organisation and delete it?


W'll go and see if we can have suc6 with the powershell syntax.
Tnx!!

And that was exactly the reason behind such implementation :)
We didn't want to make it easy to kill your backup data right from the UI, as it could result in unwanted/accidental loss of your backups. With PowerShell, there's more confidence that cleaning up a repository was an intention and admin checked everything twice before going ahead. Makes sense?

Is'n it much more simple to prevent that from happingen bij naming the OK button something like "YES, OK, Go ahead and delete ALL my backup data"?
That should warn the user more then enough

Now you make the software virtualy unusable for an avarage user

Hi Gerard,

Removing backups manually is seen more as an emergency measure, than as a day-to-day task, however, your feedback is heard.


Thanks!
