    After migrating to a new v70 server from a v68 server, I went into the backup folder to ensure backups had run last night as scheduled on my server server. They had, and I saw all the .tar.gz files in the backup directory with today's date.

    However, on my v68 server, I remember recently noticing in the dated backup folder it also contained (along with the .tar.gz files) one =-meta file for each backup tar file. These are no longer present with the backups on the v70 server.

    Just wondering if I configured something differently on the new server or if there has indeed been a change in how the backup files are stored.

    Thanks!

    Hi @swbrains

    I believe this was modified in 70 to accommodate a resolution to an internal case we resolved in v70. They're now stored in the /backups/date/accounts/.master.meta file which corresponds to the SQLite db at /backups/.meta/$user.db

    Thanks!

    Ok, makes sense. I just wanted to ensure that I hadn't forgotten to set something on the new server like it was on the old server!

    Thanks!
