    Hello

    Backup run during night and lo report an error with "no space left"

    On the partition backup we have 7.2 GB totale and backup compressed must be 3GB..

    Seems the problem is that procedure first copy on backup partition and after run gzip .. right ?

    So have error :
    Creating Archive ....
    gzip: stdout: No space left on device

    Any idea to solve this ?

    Tx

    Yes, cPanel backup copies the files/folders related to an account in one directory and then gzip it. You definitely should have an account that is more in size than the available disk space on the backup drive.

    Well, cPanel backup do not gzip the /home partition directly. You will have do it manually by writing a script and scheduling it using a cronjob.

    Right, you cannot backup an account of 8GB under a 7.2GB backup space though it's size goes down to 2GB after gzip.
