[quote ="Knatterton"]After an upgrade from 8.0.0 -> 8.0.1 has my ldap data.mdb a size of 85GByte!!!!!!! from 3.4MByte[/QUOTE]No it hasn't. Search the forums for some details of what's happened, it has already been mentioned.

BTW, you really should post messages in the correct forum. I'll move this as it's not a question about Zimbra Desktop (which is where you've posted).

It's Allocated disk. It does take up 85 Gig when backed up or rsync'ed to another server.

That's why you've been told that using rsync is not the correct method of backing-up that file as you may end up with a corrupted database and you've also been given the correct method of backing-up that file - stop spreading misinformation.

It isn't actually an 85GB file, it's sparse allocated and has been discussed in the forums.
