Question

Data usage backup.

As of this week we are using a droplet with 3tb data transfer, in 4 days we already have use 250gb, we have done nothing with it yet and my guess is that the usage is caused by backups? I’d like some help on this. Because we do not want to exceed the bandwith limit.

Hi @Daadkracht2021,

How are you genereting the backups? Are you using the DigitalOcean’s backups service:

Or something else?
