OK the backup completed. I saved everything.
I have no idea what all this stuff is. I thought the zip file might contain all the other things listed in the back area, but that is not the case.
More confusing: When I go into my Panel it shows my SQL server as being 18 megs.
I thought maybe that included everything in my site. But not so. The backup contains a folder that is over 78mb (oneman_onemanz.com) and another over 30mb (info_onemanz.com) and so forth.
While not 4 gigs, the whole back up was 645mb. A lot larger than the 18mb listed for SQL.
OK I see some of this is simply email, which I am purging.
But does your 4gb limit refer to any one of the things in the backup, or do all of them count as ONE thing, so if they add up to 4gb the back up will cut off?
And if it cuts off, is it saving the Site content first and it will be email that is lost?
