Viewing Problem with backup files

Problem with backup files

User: Dan W. 12 days ago
Looking for some insight. While clearing my trash, I noticed all of the deleted backup files for my main site are only 22 bytes in size, I checked the backup folder, and indeed, the backup files are all 22 bytes. The website project file is 2.61 GB. I tried running a manual b/u, and generated another 22 byte file. Anyone have any ideas as to what would cause this. I am using version 2.0.2 on OS X Sierra 10.12.6

Hi, Dan.

Unfortunately, I can confirm that these backups are of no use to you. You can delete them.

You need to try exporting to the new place and Dropbox would be the best solution. Or any other cloud storage.

We have a video tutorial about that:

Thank you for your reply. I understand that the backups are useless, the problem is that EverWeb is generating 22 byte backup files for a 2.6GB project file. I did set backup to point to a Dropbox folder, and generated a 22 byte file there too. I wonder if possibly my project file has exceeded some file size limit for the version of EW I am using, or possibly a problem between the EW version & OS version.

p.s., I have created a duplicate of the project file on an external drive as a precaution.
