Prevent Backups from eating up all free space on local or remote destination
This request is based on a negative experience where a mount into the VPS failed and the backup was created in a local folder instead of the backup partition.
If the backup destination is a local folder (even if it is a different bind mount) steps should be taken so the backup does not:
- eat up all free space
- eat up all inodes
and thus crashing the server.
A simple option to:
halt backups if backup destionation has less than [ 10 ]% free space.
(ftp destinations is not a problem)
this feature request addresses not crashing the entire server by filling up local space with backups if there.
This can be reproduced also by having a remote FTP destination fail and local backup files not being deleted, so any part of the backup that is using local temp or local folders should check for disk space and gracefull halt if there is low disk space.
