For a few days, in our server where we have an instance of Moodle, version 3.1, we see that the space occupied on disk has increased a lot. We investigate the case, and we have seen that what is increasing the space occupied in disk is inside the folder moodledata / temp / backup. This directorior occupies a lot when there should be almost nothing inside him.
We have been investigating a bit to see why this increase occurs in disk space. We have verified that the option Site Administration> Courses> Backup> Scheduled Backup the "Active" option we have it with the value "Disabled".
On the other hand, we are erasing many courses. Some of these course deletes fail for server time out. Can the generation of temp / backup content that is increasing disk space be caused by the failed deletion of the courses?
Thank you very much in advance.
