backup size

How can I limit the size of the backup on icloud

On your device iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) you can go to settings > iCloud > storage > storage management > press the device name in the backup section and then turn off the items you want to exclude from the next backup.

  • Backup size seems too big, then save too little...

    Hi all

    I recently had the warning that my iCloud storage is running low.

    When you go to manage storage on my iPhone, it shows the current size of backup as 3.4 GB and the size of next backup as 64.4 MB.

    Looking at what is happening to back up, the most important is 148 MB of photos.  By adding up everything on the list that will appear I get about 250 MB.  I understand there are things like messages, mail etc. to go on top of that.

    First of all, how is my next backup size only 64.4 MB when it shows clearly more than that in the list below?  What is the amount of data needed to bring the backup to this day?

    Second, I'm not sure how to reach 3.4 GB size current backup.  What has always taken a lot of place are my photo library, but for about a year now, I don't have "My Photo Stream" and "iCloud Photo Sharing" voluntarily to keep my backup size low.

    My iPad back is up to 1.1 GB, which is what I was waiting for my iPhone to be.

    See you soon!

    To answer your first question, backups are incremental.  It is, essentially, that the data/parameters have changed since the last backup are added to the current backup.  And, yes - 64.4 MB would just bring your backup to date.

    As for your second question, I'm not sure either, based on what you have demonstrated.

  • Why is iCloud nearly full storage? My backup size is only 2.2 GB.

    During the last two weeks I received emails from [email protected] saying:

    "Your iCloud-storage space is almost full. You have 440.1 MB remaining 5 GB of total storage. »

    Yet, as shown in the photo below, my iPhone backup size is only 2.2 GB. I use iOS 9.3.2 and have only an iPhone 6 64 GB, which is not jail broken, on the iCloud account. I iCloud drive, but I use it for only four apps and the total size of their files is only 14.2 MB. I do not use iCloud photo library, My Photo Stream or iCloud, photo sharing.

    What can be using the other 2.7 + GB of storage iCloud?

    Do you have other devices using the same Apple ID?

    They can use some of your iCloud space.

  • Why backup size don't add up?

    I have a problem to backup my phone.

    If I'm going to manage storage

    Documents and data: 43.6 MB

    Mailing address: 17.5 MB

    If I go into my iPhone

    Backup size: 3.7 GB

    Then back up size: 0 bytes

    I have most of the applications off including photo library.

    What is eating up 3.7 GB for backup for iCloud?

    I also tried to delete the backup to my phone.

    When I save, the size was 3.7 GB.

    Thank you!

    I thought that partially the problem.

    I have an iPhone, iPad and Macbook which use the same space to iCloud. Apparently the messages take place backup, and there is no way to turn it off unless you remove all the messages.

    I deleted all of the messages on my Mac, iPad and iPhone, and I was able to free 3 GB space iCloud.

    Even after deleting my messages, it did not free space immediately. I had to delete the backups and backup fresh spring. Then the size reflects the changes.

    I guess that if send you / receive a lot of picture messages and you have multiple devices using the same iMessage, you end up losing iCloud spaces. I could be wrong, but they seemed all backed up separately, even if they are the same messages.

    Anyway, there is always a mystery. After you delete the messages, iPhone and iPad now only mix 800 MB. However, if I go to iCloud on my Mac, it says I have 600 MB of documents.

    I have almost nothing on my player iCloud, less than 30 MB. Where are the documents of this mystery? I also deleted all my messages on my Mac, and photo library is not checked.

    Now my iPhone uses 600 MB, iPad use 200 MB and mystery documents use 600 MB. Full use is 1.4 GB and I have 3.6 GB free.

    Someone know where I can find the documents of mystery?

    Thank you!

  • my "next back up" currently reads 105 MB, but when I save the backup size is 4.6 GB

    This has happened to me for a while, I hope that someone out there have an idea!

    I save only AN app in iCloud, so my 'next to the top' currently (and usually) 105 MB, but THEN when I backup the backup size is 4.6 GB! I'm 39.3 KB Notes, Documents and data currently as well... there a any sense to anyone? What Miss me?

    < re-titled by host >

    I think it is normal.  The same thing happens to me.  In my view, once make you a first backup to iCloud, other "backups" are incremental.  Only changed data on the device (since the last backup) are added to the existing backup.  If I am wrong, perhaps someone could correct me.

  • What is the iTunes backup size

    When I open iTunes and go to preferences and devices, it is not the size of the backup for iPad or iPhone, only date and time, what they have done. How can I find out what size these backups are on my Mac computer? Is there a file location to find out the exact size of these backups?

  • How to limit my Time Machine backup size?

    Hi, I have a 3 TB Time Capsule. My macbook uses all the 3 TB for backups. I would like to limit the size of the Time Machine backups to 1.5 TB and use the rest for my own files. Is there any setting or application in App Store to limit the size of the backups?

    Unfortunately no, if you ask on the backup using Time Machine.

    It is not officially supported by Apple, but you may be able to change the size of the space allowed for a backup by using this trick:

  • compressed backup size differ between the band and hard drive

    It is out of curiosity.

    11.2.0.3 EE on OEL 5.6 DB (64 bit) + Compression Adv.

    TSM for MML

    The disc and sbt_tape are configured for compressed backupsets

    compression algorithm is set to 'HIGH '.

    If I backup to disk, it takes 1.5hrs and produces a backup 10 GB piece.

    If I backup to tape, it takes 5 hours and produced a 27 GB backup piece.

    I look at 'top', it seems that 1 core working 100% with the majority of which (> 90%) being "user" (that's to say not i/o-bound or wait)

    (part of the 10 GB backup tape backup takes < 2 min over a link to 1GigE)

    Has anyone else seen this type of difference in size when they perform a compressed disk vs. tape backup?

    Is this supposed to happen?

    Should I be worried?

    Thank you very much for any information.

    After several Reading the Famous Mwill integrate, it seems that "compression unused block" is shot in for the DISCS.

    So, Yes.  An algorithm different is used between the DISCS and SBT_TAPE.

    Looks SPFile size on backup is '0' and not what I was expecting (SPFile is actually being used and it is not empty).

    Should what kind of verification I do to see if everything is OK? Maybe a non-destructive.

    Thank you very much!

    Hello R,

    (1) the SPFile will be restored in a custom location / name of my choice ("spfile_restore.ora")
    which may be different from the ACTIVE SPFile

    I would say that must be different from the current spfile...

    (2) the SPFile ACTIVE will always be in place and will always be that "in use" even after restoring

    Correct the restored spfile will not be part of any oracle process.
    Kind regards

  • Big increase in size of the backups after upgrade

  • Thin Provisioning not reduce size of backup

    I use ghettoVCB to save some of my virtual machines. I changed some of these virtual machines to use a provisioning in an attempt to reduce the size of backup. When I browse my store of data using vSphere Client, I see that the thin provisioned disks take less space. However, when I go back to a NFS store on a Windows Server 2008 R2, backup sizes are the same as they were when I used thick provisioning. Is this normal on a Windows NFS share? I did specify a provisioning for ghettoVCB.

    I ran sdelete and VMWare Converter to try to reduce the disks; This decreases the size of the disk that I see in the browser to store data, but the size of the backups on the NFS share was always the same.

    I don't have access to an NFS server ATM, but tests on a ZFS volume w/de-dupe that is exported outside like NFS, I can confirm that on the host ESX virtual machine appears as thin provisioned and when you do ls - lha on the VMDK is 8 GB and not 0 GB, but when you look at the free data store no space has been consumed during the creation of this new virtual machine. It all depends on your server and it is the configuration of NFS, I agree with RParker, you'll want to enable deduplication on your NFS server if it is supported. Put into operation end is handled differently on the NFS Server vs on VMFS volume and it dictated by the server NFS itself on how it is configured to manage a provisioning.

  • Time Machine 'clean up older backups' takes too long

    I see that Time machine for my iMac does daily backups. Recently, he completed a backup in an hour or two. Then it does «clean up older backups...» ». Unexpectedly, it takes a lot of time, up to 6 hours. Sometimes, I need to close and stop without completing the cleaning.

    Syslog says:

    05/07/16 9:32:35.518 AM com.apple.backupd [207]: deleted the backup of the Volumes/time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb/dk/2016-03-07-072332 containing 6.51 GB; Now available, 251.2 GB 529,85 GB required

    05/07/16 9:32:35.537 AM com.apple.backupd [207]: removed 11 expired backups so far more space is needed - delete older backups to make room

    When I run the diagnostic tool EtreCheck, he said:

    myData [network]

    Total size: 997,71 GB

    Total number of backups: 25

    An older backup: 02/08/16, 08:50

    Backup disk size: too small

    997,71 GB backup size < (disc 664,27 GB X 3)

    The questions of the community are:

    Why cleaning taking so long?

    and

    If she tries to delete older backups can just go in there (/ Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb/) myself to remove older archives?

    NO, stay away from the database of Time Machine. Cleaning of files may take a while, but you don't have to wait until it finishes. Just stop your Mac when you want, she can continue to clean later.

  • Backups Time Machine very slow on 2015 MacBook Air

    Associated with a topic of discussion between a few days ago (two MacBooks, 10.11.4, a fast Time Machine backup and a very slow), I start a new topic with new information that seem to show it is a problem more general and not related to Time Machine networks.

    Here's the situation:

    • A 2015 MacBook Air, 10.11.4, 8 GB / 512 GB, has extremely slow performance of backup Time Machine, taking 40 hours for the first 300 GB backup and incremental backups for a long time as well
    • TM performance is essentially the same whether on the network (wired Ethernet) or a USB3 external disk
    • When you back up to disk USB3, I confirmed that the information system shows that the port is configured as USB3, not USB2 (nothing else is plugged into the USB port)
    • Tests of bandwidth I/O gross (using dd and iperf) show no problem; the network reached 110 MB/s bandwidth, written network managed at 50 Mbps, external USB3 HD written work at 40-50 MB/s (write hard drive speed limit)
    • 3 other Macs of various ages from 2009-2014 on the same network have no problem at all do backups Time Machine Network; a backup complete first on a 2011 MacBook Pro 500 GB takes 5 hours or more than 10 x faster than the MBA problem
    • Time machine network uses a Linux server running the latest Debian and Netatalk 3.1.8 and the connection is via a USB3/Gigabit adapter, no WiFi, and iperf tests with this arrangement shows 900 MB/s of throughput of the server.  In all cases, the Time Machine and external time Machine Network USB HD have the same symptoms.
    • The problem with MacBook Air is configured the same as the MacBook Pro 2011, which she replaced "daily driver", possible
    • This problem was shown by the MBA since his unboxing conversion, taking 20 hours for his first backup once Setup initially.  Incremental backups now take several hours, leading to interrupted incremental backups and, I believe, databases corrupted backup triggers new full backups that take today the 40 hours.

    Using Terminal Server and iostat, Console, etc, I see that there is significant activity e/s for the backup drive on the order of 20 to 40 MB/s for long periods on the MBA during the TM backup, but during that time the average declared backup size as shown in the window in the console and TM is growing by only 5 GB/hour.  This occur even if the backup will the external drive or a network drive. This seems to mean that the I/O bandwidth to and from the disk hard external, only 1/600 contributes to the progress of the backup.  I am sure that there is overload of certain checks and other tasks, but not to a 600-to-1 ratio.

    I tried to disable the limitation of the I/O of low priority as shown here: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/212537/time-machine-ridiculously-slow-a close-el-capitan-upgrade, that helps a bit (maybe 20-30%), but not by a factor of 10 for others.

    I have gone through a number of the Time Machine of Pondini troubleshooting steps, but he found nothing corresponding to these symptoms.

    The only thing I can conclude is that Time Machine, the application or configuration, on this specific MBA, is down. (A single thought that I wrote this to the top that I have not tried: the MBA and the time MBP running VMware Fusion and have a file of 50 + GB VM; on the MBA that is not excluded from TM backups while on the MBP is)

    Does anyone have advice on what to watch next?  In all cases, only one key would be why it seems that only 0.16% of all the bandwidth I/O to the backup drive seems to be actual data backup.

    Once again, three other Macs, all running the same 10.11.4, back to the Time Machine Server perfectly and have for years.  Only this new MBA glue as broken out, either to a network drive or an external hard drive USB3.

    (A single thought that I wrote this to the top that I have not tried: the MBA and the time MBP running VMware Fusion and have a file of 50 + GB VM; on the MBA that is not excluded from TM backups while on the MBP is)

    What happens when you exclude it as the MBP?

  • Backup iPhone via slow iCloud

    Hello community,

    I have always supported my Apple devices via iTunes. It's simple fast, easy and effective.

    Recently, I decided for my iPhone 6s I would also use the iCloud stat. I travel a lot and it would make sense that something happened where I needed and my MacBook was not available.

    I was wondering if someone else was painfully slow and inconsistent attempt to save as I. I have no pictures on the Filmstrip. All things irrelevant who do not need backup, I took off. It is located to save only what I "need". I am OCD with the phone is not as if I had a world of garbage out there.

    When I'm fully charged or load I try to save. First thing, it is that he says it will take 2 hours and then 1 hour then back to 2 hours. Internet connection is good, but it's also all browsing on another device almost impossible so that this back up is happening.

    He also got at the end of its 'hour' or however long it took... And then displays the most annoying message "backup could not be performed! Why does take so long?

    I even tried on a connection to the internet friends super fast fiber and it was exactly the same thing! I just turn it off because it seems like a waste of time right now. I expect better from Apple on this one. With all Apple devices I have and own I stick by that they are the best. But other manufacturers are catching up... Is it a matter of time. Simple things like that shouldn't be a problem, I would say!

    I would here similar problems or even a solution. Maybe I'm stupid here and there's something miss me in all this. ?

    One more thing... As I write this post I can choose my products of the list what I'm talking about. Yet once, disorder obsessive-compulsive and is up-to-date. My available product list me under here are about 2 years old! Sigh... What is with all this! Maybe someone taking care of everything that this must be a bit more OCD! I've 'none' will elect because my camera is not in my list below updated!

    Mac.

    If you save on iCloud for the first time, it may take some time until the data has been saved. Have you tried to connect to the adapter and the WiFi during the night?

    Looking iCloud/storage/management storage should also give you the backup size will be used the next time your phone is inactive, connected to Wi - Fi and.
