Backup zipped file is invalid

Hi.

We have the backup job enabled which is making a backup daily.

At the moment, attachments are included in the backups. The file size is approximately 4.3 GB.

But when we try to open the file an error message is showed and says file is invalid.

This could be a big problem if for some reason we need to make a restoration.

Thanks.

Jose

XML backup is not recommended for production instances. The zip might be bad because of an error thrown when creating it. Check the logs for errors regarding the backup process.

I would recommend backing up attachments separately no matter what method you use. Also, see Backuping Confluence for a better backup strategy.
