My using rsync command to backup my mail server mailbox to backup server.
I am using following command for backup.
rsync -avzu -e ssh root at 192.168.1.12:/mail_home /mail_backup
I configured daily cron for this command in backup server.
In mail server /mail_home folder having all user's mailbox and size of
mail_home is 345 GB and in backup server I have assign 450 GB for
mail_backup drive. when I run command first time its copied all mailbox
folder from mail server to backup server but when crontab run second
time in backup server the Mail_backup drive showing full. after that I
run script on backup server and mail server which show all folder size
and compare with both results. in both server each folders size is same.
Now I am wondering why backup server showing Mail_backup full.
