Removing the Blockchain Backup to Free Space

If the Bitseed device hard drive gets full, space can be freed by removing the blockchain backup and disabling backup and restore functions. This applies to versions 2.0.3 and earlier.

To disable backup:

First, SSH into the device (instructions vary based on OS, see documentation here).

Remove some files and the backup:

 rm -rf livebak
 rm backupdb.sh
 rm btcwatch.sh

Get a new watchdog file:

 wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bitseed-org/bitcoin-box/master/.hdd/btcwatchlite.sh
 mv btcwatchlite.sh btcwatch.sh
 chmod 755 btcwatch.sh

Startup bitcoind:

    ./bitcoind -daemon

For version 2.1.0 and later, set “Disable Backup” in the web UI, then remove the backup directory:

    rm -rf /home/linaro/livebak
