Future Scaling Question



Once your hard drive starts to become low on disk space what are the options for archiving? Is it possible to store data before a certain date to another drive? I don't want to delete this data completely.

The following article outlines how PRTG stores its data: How and where does PRTG store its data?

The individual, daily data files can be backed up and removed, as long as it is not imperative to have access to this data at the time being (the files can be copied back into the data directory at any given time, allowing to access the same after recalculating the data cache). It isn't possible, however, to split the data.

If you wish to move all the data to a different drive, please have a look at How can I change the data directory of my PRTG installation?
