Q:When I try to save may backups to the WebDAV Server, davfs2 creates another
copy on disk, so I run out of disk space. Why does dafs2 do this?
A: davfs2 will allways create a local copy of all files moved between the local
computer and the server. There are several reasons for this:
- The coda kernel file system needs this. It will only read and write to
- Although HTTP allows for incremental downloads of files, as far as I can see,
there is no way to upload files incrementally. So davfs2 needs to get the
whole file from the application before it can send it to the server.
davfs2 really is not a replacement for network file systems like nfs.
