As the mere size of the constantly changing data file tampers with my backup concept, I would like to ask if there is a way to split this file into many smaller pieces. I have no problem with the size as such, but with the amount of changes.
Background is, I do my backups with
rsnapshot. This links files which haven't been changed on the target together, while changed files are copied in full.
That's why I would imagine to split the currently about 763 MB big
blk0001.dat into two files:
blk0001.dathaving maybe 700 MB, and not changing (frequently) in the future.
blk0002.datholding the rest.
As the 2nd file grows steadily, I would, after it has reached a certain size, put more data from it into
blk0001.dat, and eventually stop changing this file at all, starting a 3rd one.
Has someone done this already?
