This is a reminder of an old thread by Brendan Daly Container field image files in expired Backups are not deleted.
Originally, the issue was reported on 12.0v1 server and FMI was able to replicate.
However, we never heard from their conclusion and the issue still occurs on FMS 12.0v6.
I created this new occurrence to bring it one more time at the top of the list.
Oh and i have a "tiebreaker" question :
Can we erase manually the old Backup folders safely ?
I ask because i am not very aware about "hard links" and their consequences.
Thank you for your post.
I have replied to your related post (the Brendan Daly link you mentioned) at:
In essence, this issue no longer occurs in FileMaker Server 13, and the changes made were not applied to FileMaker Server 12.
As far as your "tiebreaker" question, yes, you can manually delete the old Backup folders safely. The links only apply to the backup file, and if the backup file is removed, those links no longer exist.
