Hard Disk Space Needed for Backups

Before scheduling automatic backups of Report Server data or performing a manual backup, check to make sure your server confirms to the minimum system requirements specified in the Vocera Installation Guide.

Each time you back up Report Server data, you use roughly 4 times the size of the \vocera\reports\data\sqldata directory. For example, if the \vocera\reports\data\sqldata directory currently uses 2 GB of disk space, then at least 8 GB free disk space is needed to perform another backup.

The frequency of scheduled backups also affects the disk space required. For example, if you schedule daily backups, you will need much more free disk space than if you schedule weekly or monthly backups.

Performing regular archiving and purging of Report Server data can reduce the disk space required for scheduled backups.
