on vero 4k my auto backup is not working properly.
in the setting i select auto backup at 06:00am and only keep 1 backup file
but my old backup is still here and does not get overwritten.
so every day i get the message “failed to transfer tar file” and i have to klick ok and after that the system is again checking for updates. But my new backup tar is not in my backup folder, it still contains the old file.

Failed to write file is likely either as a result of permission issues or lack of space.
But look at this:
06:00:41.250 T:3864531952 DEBUG: OSMC BACKUP: : - local required disk space: 3440218344

Your backup file is 3,440,218,344 (about 3.4 GB) in size and you have about 5.3 GB of space. That’s a very large backup. I’m not sure why it’s failing to copy the file but you should seriously consider excluding some categories of data and/or writing it to an external thumbdrive or network drive.
