How can I copy the most recent backup files that are created nightly by the Kbox and not the others? I recently upgraded the Kbox to ver. 5.2.38773 and of course this has the New Backup and Restore section and Kbox now appends the date to the beginning of the backup file names. This is all good but I still copy the files (file & database backup) off the Kbox to another location that is backed-up nightly by our Avamar system. I just want to be able to pull the most recent file (not all) but I don't know any commands for ftp to have it get the most current file based on the date. Has anyone found a way to do this?

Thanks.

  • Hi All, I just ran the FTP commands to "pull down" the most recent, but where do they get pulled into..If anyone catches this and has the location let me know. Thank you!
  • Where do the files get pullled to ?
  • I use filezilla and task scheduler on another server to pull the backup files from the k1000 onto the specified server. My Avamar backup system then backs up this server. Just in case the K1000 goes down and I lose my backups there.

I'm running 5.2.38773, and it doesn't append the date on the files... I still use the FTP method to pull kbox_dbdata.gz and kbox_file.tgz nightly.

Are the appended dates on the file names only visable from the Kbox Backup section then? I figured the files that were copied over would all have the date appended to them just like I see on the Kbox. I had modified the .bat & .scr files to copy the Kbox_files to a folder overwriting the exisiting so I would get only one copy of each file for my nightly backup and not keep adding to the local folder/nightly backup. I'll change the .scr file back to original if that's the case.

If you go to Settings -> Server Maintenance, you should see the two files listed at the bottom. Where are you seeing the dates added to the filenames?

In the Backup & Restore section in Control Panel. I just assumed the file names would be the same as what was shown there. Everything is working good with the original bat/scr files now.

Thanks.

Wow, I hadn't even had time to take a look at that feature yet. LOL

That new backup & restore section can be used to retain X number of days of backups, but the old standard nightly backups are still available. I haven't changed by FTP batch file for years, and it's still working like a champ!

The KBOX automatically maps aliases for kbox_dbdata.gz and kbox_file.tgz so that they point to the latest backup files.
