Hey all,
We are trying to improve `bosh backup` functionality for backing up
Director contents. Currently it exports a tarball with a director db, task
logs, and blobstore contents. I don't think it's practical to export whole
blobstore (contains releases, compiled packages, etc.) since it may be very

and task logs. For recovering blobstore contents you will be able to run
`bosh upload release x.tgz --fix` to backfill contents. We have fix-assets
stories to intro this features:
