Octoprint backup affects print?


I was looking at the new Backup Scheduler plugin and while I was setting it up, I realized I have no idea if creating a backup affecta performance that much, that when the printer is printing from Octoprint, it affects/pauses/kills the running print.

Does it?

@jneilliii should know.

Maybe an option to backup when not printing could be nice (if it not does it already by default)
Else you could go the the github issue tracker.

It holds back the backup if a print is active, then runs once its done. Just for performance I think.


This is exactly what it does, so no need to worry about performance issues related to backup running while printing.


Wow! That's great.

After reading the Readme on Github, I see it is mentioned there :wink:
