    Hey,

    When using remote backup, does the process work like this

    1. Backing up
    2. Sending Backup to Remote location
    3. Clearing backup locally
    4. Repeat with next account

    or

    1. Backing up
    2. Sending backup to Remote location
    3. Repeat with next account
    .....
    ....
    4. No more accounts to backup, clear the local backup

    I am trying to determine if I can backup in less space, last backup was 256GB and my /root is 230GB, I need to understand if it deletes after it has moved the backup over before proceeding to the next one or if it has to create all first and move them then delete locally.

    For anyone wondering about this, I ran a test myself and it does indeed move the file it finished backing up remotely and deletes it, and proceeds to next one so you can back up 300GB in a 50GB space easy with remote enabled and just make sure to "enforce retention" so that it wont just crash in case its partial backup. Also of course make sure not to check mark "Retain backup in local directory"
