💾 talkgroup backup log

I keep a reminder task to download backups. I use this topic to record it happening, and sizes.

That seems like a dramatic decrease in size for the database… maybe there was an update that jump-started a queue to clear out old deleted topics or something… :thinking:

v1 backup is down 2MB. Fascinating! I think it is from processing popular topics, which have a lot of text, and the text reduction is what we’re seeing. :thinking:

Always neat to see how the sizes change over time. I’ll have to graph it at some point.

A recent version of Discourse now has the option to permanently delete content from the database, which is great, because now I we can fill it up with nonsense posts and experiments!
