I administrate the hardware for the forums. At 4:00 AM CST the server dumps and compresses around 5GB of data, which is then sent to and off site server. This consumes a significant amount of resources when this occurs, But we have found this to be the best trade off. Currently if the database is corrupted, hacked, or otherwise damaged it will only be one day behind when restored. We have adopted this policy after having a hard disk corrupt and the last backup was over two weeks old, earlier this year.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
