[farmshare-discuss] Unknown backup files in afs folder

    The .backup space is your AFS backup snapshot and doesn't affect your quota.

See for further information about this.

I found a folder called backup in my afs folder. The size is very large:

du -h --max-depth=1

du: cannot access './.backup/.backup': No such device

6.2G ./.backup

When I tried to delete it, it seemed that I did not have the access because it is created by admin. Is there a way to delete it because I cannot create any new file on my afs folder?


Best wishes,
