Canceled Granular Restore Takes Up Disk Space RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I performed a Granular Restore of a site from a backed up content database. Part way through I realized that I probably would not have enough disk space to complete the back. So I canceled the backup. No .cmp files were created but the disk space from the backup was filled up.

    Is there a way to clear out the disk space the granular restore took up before the .cmp files were created?

    Thank you,

  • Hi,

    If I understand correctly, you canceled the backup action and no .cmp files were created, but disk space reduced. Am I right?

    Please make sure that the path you set for the backup to see if there are any files. If yes, please delete them completely.

    Feel free to reply if there is any update.
