MariaDB has usr/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin (doesn't end). Big size?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I bumped into something the other day, when I was making a backup of my @appstore.

 

In the MariaDB folder under 'usr' I have several bin folders. Like this:

 

@appstore\MariaDB\usr\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin\bin

 

This goes on and on probably, but I hit a limit (on Windows, when transfering the files to my PC). The files under all the bin folders are the same.

On my Windows PC I checked how much space it was using: 1.81 GB. But that's because it hit the limit on my PC, maybe on the NAS it's even worse?

 

Now as for my questions;

 

1. Is it safe to remove the 2nd bin folder in bin? So delete the folder (and ofcourse subfolders) under /usr/bin/bin?

2. What is causing this? Any idea?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards

Thanks for replying freddan83.

 

Yeah, noticed it a bit later when I was connected through terminal.

 

Weird though that it keeps copying the folder over and over to my Windows machine. But I am glad there is no bug.

 

Thank you once again.
