I may have outgrown gfx_backup.sh, but I've been using the script for over a year with no issues - and now it can't completely delete previous backups from the ftp storage.
I've tried breaking up the backup files into smaller 2gb portions, and inserting a sleep statement in the script itself. However, the best I've been able to accomplish is the automated removal of most of the previous backups. I end up having to manually delete one remaining file.
The hosting provider believes that they aren't the cause, and that may be the case as this problem started happening when my backups grew over 5.2gb in size. This particular backup is one of two backups I do every 24 Hours for redundancy purposes.
Does anyone use this script to handle large backups, or have a suggestion?
