Structure of an inSync storage
The following diagram explains the structure of an inSync storage.
As illustrated, a both storage consist of the following components:
- Data folder: This component contains the deduplicated data that is backed up from user devices. The data is stored in a data folder which in turn is made up of data volumes. Data volumes are discrete units of storage on a physical disk that supports data.
- Database folder: This component contains metadata information about the data deduplication implemented by inSync.
- Database log folder: This component contains transaction logs for any transaction happening in the database folder.
Guidelines for creating a storage
When creating a storage, follow the guidelines specified in the table below.
|Data folder|| |
Note: For a backup to be successful, there must be at least 10 GB of free space on the storage data folder. inSync checks for this condition every 10 minutes and if it is not satisfied, ongoing backups are stopped and scheduled backups are put on hold. Backups do not start until you increase the free space to at least 50 GB.
