Hey guys,

on my own installation I got rid of some old backups with the prune command and my usage isn't updating to correct size. Is that normal or can I update it with a command on CLI? I already did a newblike restart of the PBS.

Can you post the output of the following code?

Bash:
proxmox-backup-debug api get /status/datastore --output-format json

I guess I have to insert my datastore anywhere or?
I tryed it but still same error... maybe the problem got fixed by itself after last 2 days, the storage usage went down a bit, but maybe we can clear things up with your command?

Bash:
root@pbs:~# proxmox-backup-debug api get /status/datastore --output-format json
Error: no GET handler defined for '/status/datastore'
root@pbs:~# proxmox-backup-debug api get /status/datastore/backup --output-format json
Error: no GET handler defined for '/status/datastore/backup'
root@pbs:~# proxmox-backup-debug api get /status/backup --output-format json
Error: no GET handler defined for '/status/backup'

that is the difference right now

Thats normal. Pruning doesn't immediately free up space. With prune you mark backups for deletion and only a GC job will actually delete chunks. And a GC job will only delete chunks that were marked for deletion atleast 24 hours and 5 minutes ago.
