Why can I not backup files over 4GB in the backup manager? - Nitrous Networks

Why can I not backup files over 4GB in the backup manager?

Unfortunately, we will not be able to backup server files that are over 4GB in size, this is because moving and restore such large files is extremely difficult.

If you want to backup files and you are over 4GB, try and remove some unwanted files, you can remove the following..

  1. Log files, either your server.log or the entire logs folder.

  2. Any block logging plugin that writes to flat database files.

  3. Any ZIPs or worlds you are not longer using.

  4. And lastly Dynmap, removing this can free up a lot of disk space.


Unfortunately we cannot up this limit, so please don't ask.
