Massively Inflated Backups
Don't know what is going on here but was just informed that since June 1st I have used 295gb of internet. Was very confused and then went to look at Cloudron and after some digging found out that what is being uploaded to BackBlaze is between 80-90gb (nightly) of data just from n8n. I was super confused and went to go disable the backups and check the storage of n8n and why it would possibly be using that much space on my server only to find out it is listed as taking up 193mb of space. So anyone have the same experience or have any idea what is happening here?
As an aside (sorry for posting in the n8n section but seems relevant) even though I have Nextcloud auto backups disabled for some reason that also did a backup yesterday. No clue why that happen as I have never had backups enabled for it and didn't trigger one myself. Maybe related somehow? Either way I am super confused by what is going on here.
TL;DR n8n uses 198mb of storage on my cloudron server but backs up 80-90gb to backblaze nightly.
@ericdrgn Just to double check - you logged into BackBlaze and confirmed that there is a file with 80-90GB file size ?
If so, can you just download that file and check what's inside it that is taking so much space?
You can also check the size of
/home/yellowtent/appsdata/<n8n-app-id>on the server.
Yeah, that's where I saw that it was backing something from n8n. I actually looked back through the backblaze backups further and it has actually happened with n8n periodically for a while now. Just happened to do it nightly this month. I'll get the file downloaded and get back to you.
