My backup size is increasing and the backups are taking much longer to do. What can I do to streamline the process?
It is recommended that a reindex is performed on your system once a month, this is available under Admin / Reindex
While this is being done, use the option to remove Emails, these attachments form part of the back up and if not purged can rapidly increase the size.
Emails can also be Purged from the Queued Email screen by using the Purge Sent button. This will remove all emails and their attachments.
If the emails have been removed, there is still a report which will show Invoices and Statements that have been sent to your Customers.
In version 8.427 there is an option in Admin / Manage Email Defaults to keep the email attachments see this article for instructions.
