I have come across this problem frequently -- backups are running
great, then one day I notice that backups are bigger than they should
be. I look into it, and a large file was copied somewhere that got
backed up but shouldn't have. I've searched around and can't find an
answer to this one, forgive me if I overlooked a solution.
I can add an exclusion and wait for the file to expire from the pool,
but for my configuration this takes months.
1) is there a current (safe) way to delete a file from the pool/cpool
and from all backups
2) if not, what would this take? I would have to delete the entry in
the pool/cpool, and the link(s) to it from the individual pc/backup#/
subdirectories, but would this be all I would need to do? I am not too
worried about updating backup stats (size, compressed size, etc) but
for completeness sake it would be nice to know exactly where I would
need to look to update that information.
