100MB backup file

by stefanosp » Tue Dec 02, 2014 11:43 pm

Hello,

with my RB951G-2HnD I have a strange problem

When I run "system backup" command, the result is a very large file that increases until it uses all the free space.

any idea to solve the problem?

TIA

Sounds like data corruption. I would try to rebuild the config with an '/export compact file=' followed by a '/system reset-configuration no-defaults=yes' and then an '/import' of the export you made.

Alternatively, it looks like you have some older backups with normal file sizes on there that you managed to make pre-corruption. You might think about restoring the most recent one those, and then patching up the config to match whatever changes you made since that backup was taken.
