Never forget to "prune" your repo ("restic prune" or "restic forget --prune") if you are running Restic.

"restic forget" alone will just delete references to backups, but will not actually remove data from your backup storage.

As you can see, I have 1.2 TB of useless data in my Hetzner Storage Box, and was already thinking about wasting money for even more storage. 🤔

My backup script does it automatically every day for every repo 😃

@nuron forgot that in an updated version of my backup script 🤭
