What backend storage - filesystem or s3

My kopia server repository is going to be on SATA spinning disks attached to the server (for now, at least).

I am debating what would be better? Creating repository directly on the filesystem, or use minio s3 bucket that eventually sits on the same drive.

Would object storage have an edge here?

Please advise. Thanks!

I haven’t used minio myself but I doubt it would provide any benefits when installed on a single machine.

Out of curiosity: Why do you think it could have an edge? :thinking:
