I am new to Interworx so I apologise if I have simply overlooked information available elsewhere.
I have a question about the filesystem space usage (Storage) being reported on the SiteWorx Accounts page and how this relates to the ‘FULL’ backups (after they have been uncompressed and extracted.
The contents of the backup files I have examined are (at least when I uncompress them on my Apple Mac) considerably smaller than the reported amount of storage consumed by each user account in SiteWorx.
Put another way, in Nodeworx (under SiteWorx) I am able to view the amount of storage space consumed by each Siteworx account. However when I uncompress a ‘Full’ backup file of at Siteworx user account on a remote system (my Mac), it falls considerably short of this figure. This is the same for any Siteworx account.
My understanding is that the reverse should be more likely on the basis that the MySQL database size is not included in the reported space consumed (at least I believe that to be the case from what I have read). So why is the size of my backup contents much less than the storage consumed reported in Nodeworx?
I am concerned that my full backups are not as ‘full’ as they should be even though they do appear to be complete and I can find nothing obviously wrong with them.
Any ideas or an explanation would be much appreciated.
