I thought I would share this little bit of information with everyone since the sites first birthday is just around the corner. When the site started the database backup might have been around 10Mb if that and the file system backup was maybe around 250Mb.

The site's database is automatically backed up every night and I backup the entire file system once every two weeks or before updates are being made. This is on top of the nightly entire server backups the the hosting provider makes.

Here is the interesting information though: The database backup is now up to 163Mb and the file system backup is up to 5.3Gb. That is a lot of information LOL.

That's a lot of 1's & 0's! Good for GTT! BTW, if we add up all the posts made by all "Georges", we'd account for a lot of that storage :p
