My backups started failing a week ago as I ran out of space on the local (external) disk I’m backing up to. I hadn’t adjusted the retention policies to be aggressive enough.
Now that the device is full, I can’t seem to update the policy and run maintenance. What’s the best way to clear up enough space to get things working again?
Would prefer not to just start deleting random kopia directories until I get enough space.
Error when I update the policy:
