@ZimbiX you might consider overriding the crashplan-pro.service unit and use ExecStartPre= to delete the files in /opt/crashplan/upgrade each time the service is started.

I considered adding such to the package but I thought it seemed a bit unorthodox? I'm open to feedback from the community on this.

@ZimbiX I think that's going to be a problem as long as we CrashPlan continues to take their auto-upgrade approach. I think the general approach to counteract it today is:

  1. Clean out the upgrade packages and logs to get filesystem capacity back
  2. Upgrade to the latest package from AUR
  3. Start your backups again

#2 has been much more easy and reliable since the AUR package has been staying up-to-date since aaronm-cloudtek took over as the maintainer.

If this isn't good enough, you could always write and run a script that monitors whether it's trying to auto-apply a new upgrade and if so, stop the service before it downloads upgrade packages indefinitely until it files your filesystem. Then you could intervene with the new AUR package upgrade a little more easily.

The auto upgrade files in /opt/crashplan/upgrade filled up the disk and brought down my server again. What do you guys do to prevent this?

Sweet, upgraded to the latest version now, and it's chugging away as expected. Thanks!

Could you add a .gitignore? :)

@kflak, @fryfrog, @aaronm-cloudtek: Thanks for the quick work on this. You all helped me avert the usual auto-upgrade filled filesystem disaster with this. =]

^ The link, PKGBUILD will need some adjustment.

@kflak: Just download it and show us the link.
