Good points to bring up. The speed to recover a database I am pretty sure would not be an issue. The longest it might take is couple minutes at most. For curiosity sake I think I will test this myself.
As far as uploading to a DropBox that is a specific need specific to your setup. I am not sure if keeping database size small so it can upload on slow internet is a foundation to base a design on. However maybe we could explore other things that might help with this situation.
@emre what about an ability to break up large backups into smaller pieces? Maybe a way to backup selected Date Ranged data? For example backup only 2014 data…
Yes this is what I stated. I am saying why does it have to be this way? It doesnt. We need to leverage this in a way that SambaPOS users can use it to improve their business. I am saying we should attempt to make it user friendly so that SambaPOS allows its users to do something the competition can not.
