Cant backup big CT


New Member
May 30, 2019
I have a problem - moving from old PX 3.3-5 to 6.0 with 2 CT.
They a big - 4 Tb smaller and 7Tb bigger.
When i try to backup for future restore to lxc - Proxmox said that all right, but backup file has only 10240 bytes.
I have 8Tb free space, xfs format, so file size cannot be problem for FS.
Any suggestion?

it's taking 12 minutes with 13B/s...

* what is inside the archive?

* can you post your openvz config?

maybe your best bet could be to just rsync your data out...
