Size of indigo 7 backup

Once in a while I take a copy of the entire Indigo 7 folder and pastes it to my drop-box account.

Two questions:

1. Could I select 1-2 or two subfolders so I dont have to backup the entire Indigo 7 folder?

2. I recently noticed that the approximately 1200 files take up about 800 mb. Seems a lot. Something wrong here?

Re: Size of indigo 7 backup

Have you looked to see if any of those files are unusually large?

In terms of backing up, it really depends on how fast a recovery can get you back to where you were (generally the purpose of a backup). Backing up the whole folder will be very fast in terms of getting back up and running. I'd really recommend using a Finder window with "Calculate all sizes" checked to see what's taking up the space.

If you use sqllogger its db file is in those directories. And 1 gb file size is not that difficult to get to.

Thanks for the replies. I just look though all folder and the Indigo Hue Plugin has some quite large log files I think. All other files appeared small.
