Limiting disk space used by TimeMachine

Post by Christian » 09 Jun 2012, 06:35

Hi,

TimeMachine support in the B3 is great, but, on the long run, there is the problem that, over time, Apple's TimeMachine will fill up the whole volume. There is a simple, and official, way to restrict the size TimeMachine will use (there is not even the need of creating a separate LVM volume): using the Netatalk volsizelimit option for the TimeMachine volume.

I have added the description to the (previously outdated) How-To http://wiki.excito.org/wiki/index.php/T ... .A5_2.5.29 - it would be great if you would consider to integrate this into the B3 web UI itself (maybe an additional "TImeMachine" entry in the "Services" menu, with the only setting "Limit Size", or the like.

Best regards,
Christian
