is copy-back necessary?

dustydusty EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner
If I have an innobackupex in a directory and I've prepared the files with apply-log, is it necessary to run the copy-back command, or could I simply move that directory into the correct place?

I'm wondering if this is possible in case I don't have enough disk space to make an additional copy of the data.

Thanks

    Hi,

    Yes, you can move the files after the "--apply-log" to the datadir and start the server. Remember to chown the files to the right username, etc..
