    I get the following warning during or towards the end of backup process. Is this normal?

    Should I need to attend to this? The backup configuration has been set to NOT retain backups (but shift them off to S3).

    The contents of "/" is basically the entire server.

    Code:
    The filesystem “/” mounted at “/” reached “warn” status because you currently use 86% of its available blocks.
    
    Notification Type:warn ⚠

    Hello,

    Though backups are not retained, it's possible the temporary archives generated during the backup process lead to the "/" partition reaching 86% disk space utilization. You should keep a close eye on the available disk space, as if you add new accounts, or if existing accounts begin using more space, it could result in the server reaching 100% disk space usage. The following document is available if you want to see where most of the disk usage is coming from:

    Thank you.
