I recently moved several nodes around and consolidated them to new hardware using the Storj Node Toolbox. After several weeks of successfully running, I realized I did not move the C:\Program Files<node>\Storage Node\orders folder to the new node instance.
First, what’s the impact of this?
Second, since the node depends on two physical disks, C: for orders and a second drive for the storage folder, is there any benefit to periodically backing up unsent orders or archived orders at any interval? I guess this depends on the answer to the first question. I recall this being about optimizing performance on the orders.db?
Lastly, is there a paper that described the architecture of Storj and how the system works in more technical depth? I’d like to have a deeper knowledge of the databases, why the orders is separated from the database folder, and so on. Where can I dive deeper in white papers or something similar?
Thanks in advance
