Question to #Mastodon #Sysadmin :

Our Mastodon backup is very huge (weekly master is near 250 Gb), even if "tootctl media remove" command keeps only 15 last days.

Is there any folder(s) we could exclude from backup (cache data or media which could be retrieved after a restoration) ?

Thanks for your help



Hi. Do you run only media remove?

Have you tried tootctl preview_cards remove?

You are welcome 👍
tootctl accounts cull is another option to maintenance. It can run a looong time...
I run this three every night.
