I wanted to share the solution to Bacula cleaning up purged disk volumes.

It can be found in the Bacula Systems “Best Practices for Disk Based Backup” guide under 1.4 Truncate Volume on Purge. My only complaint about this is that I receive a message from the daemon letting me know that “No Volumes found to perform "truncate" command.” Which I would like not to receive. Any suggestions on how to suppress that message would be appreciated.

Two configuration entries in your pool add Action On Purge = Truncate and in your catalog job add:

Job {
Name = CatalogBackup
RunScript {
Console = "purge volume action=truncate allpools storage=<your file resource>"

I want the detailed volume labels, I don’t want to recycle then, I want them overwritten, purged, or whatever the terminology is. I do want to keep the weekly volumes for 14 days and the daily volumes for 2 days.

I know you want the detailed volume labels.


Bacula keeps track of what is where and when, so you don't have to.
