ResolutionTry one of the following workaround:
- Run tabadmin cleanup --restart. The folders will be removed. For more information, see Remove Unneeded Files in Tableau Help.
- Delete the folders manually as long as a backup is not currently running.
CauseWhile the backup is processing, Tabadmin backup creates a temporary .tsbak file in the folder at the following location Tableau Server/data/tabsvc/temp. When the backup completes the temp file is removed. If the backup fails to complete for any reason, the .tsbak file remains in the folder.
Additional InformationThe tsbak* files can be large since they may contain the data engine and repository contents.
