To reproduce this issue:
- Take a backup of a system that is known to have items in the datastore
- Restore that backup to a new target environment.
- Observe the datastore has no items
The instance will still work. All large binaries seem to be in the system. It appears that the restore process is not respecting the threshold set in the repo config and putting the binaries into the db.
You can also see a difference in the size of the db and repo. After the restore the db is larger and the repo is smaller.
