Backup seems too small

    We are running 10.3.1 and doing a full server backup (server config and content) each night. The backup size is only between 7-8Gb but the /vhosts folder alone is over 50Gb. A lot of the data on the websites is PDF (so already compressed). Doesn't seem right to me.

    Anybody able to give some guidance?

    Also what is in the /vhosts/servers folder (sorry a bit of a noob question but can't get my head around it and it makes up a lot of the /vhosts total).

    Thanks

    Colin

    If the backup is shown as valid in Plesk then all the data should be there.

    But to confirm I would access your server and go to your backup folder location on your drive. From here you can go to clients -> user name -> domains -> phosting -> zip folder for vhost . If you don't have any clients then you can just go to the domains folder instead of clients.

    Thanks - what is the /vhosts/servers folder for?

    /vhosts/servers is used for FTP. If you delete it all FTP accounts will stop working.

    Thanks - I just wondered why it was so, big! We have a number of users who FTP PDFs up so that would explain it. Are the folders symlinked?
