Unable to start backup due to space

OS Name/Version: Ubuntu 20.04.4

Product Name/Version: AMP Release “Triton” v2.3.3.4

Problem Description: Unable to start backup due to space

I am getting an error message while creating a manual backup.

My first support post so please forgive me if I am missing any information.

Error message:
“You have 4405MB free backup space, however this backup requires 7135MB free space. You need to remove 2730MB worth of backups before taking a new one. Your oldest backup is 5628MB.”

I first started out by checking the free space of the server. it seems that I have 34G of free space left on the server.

~# df -h
Filesystem                        Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev                              5.9G     0  5.9G   0% /dev

tmpfs                             1.2G     0  1.2G   0% /run/user/1000

The second step I did was to set the logs to debugging (just to double check), per this article: Diagnosing AMP issues · CubeCoders/AMP Wiki · GitHub

[19:50:30] [FileBackup:admin Activity] : Creating Backup: new
[19:50:30] [FileBackup:admin Debug] : Building file list...
[19:50:40] [FileBackup:admin Debug] : File list built: 414870 files totaling 7135MB
[19:50:40] [FileBackup:admin Warning] : Backup not taken: New backup would cause limit to be reached. 7135MB required, 4405MB remaining.

Later, I noticed that my scheduled backups are also not running.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

In AMP look under Configuration->Performance and Limits. It’s not the OS that’s out of space but rather the default space allowed to be used by AMP.

:woman_facepalming: Idk why I didn’t check that.
You were right on the money! Thank you for your help!
