Re: Error while using hotbackup.py

It would be interesting which filesystem you are using that 2.2 GB is "too
large". Maybe switching to a proper fs will help you with this? Anyway,
another thing is: are you using FSFS or BDB for your repository?

Another way of backing up the repository *should* be: make sure that NO
process is touching it and just do a plain copy with your OSes copy command
or tar it or anything like that (anyone speak up if this will not work for
some reason, I never made this myself).
