    Hi,

    I'm trying to backup my plesk install, but the resulting file is bigger than 2Gb and it fail. The filesystem the backup file resides is ext3.

    How can I override it?

    I use this:

    `/usr/local/psa/bin/psadump --do-not-dump-logs --nostop -f - | split -b 1100m - /backup/psadumps/PSA$timestamp`;

    Splits it into 1100 mb chunks, you can use any size you want. I use a perl script to run backups and slap a timestamp on them.
