Backup files too small

    I am new to plesk and having an issue with the backup feature. I've spent an hour searching these forums with no luck so I'll post and see if anyone has run into this before.

    I have three clients, using 2 gigs, 700 megs, and 4 gigs.

    If I backup the entire server using the pleskbackup command, the resulting file is 64 megs, if I backup the 2 gig client using the plesk backup option in the client's panel, the resulting file is 46 megs.

    I'm quite sure it's not getting everything, as the 2 gig client is almost entirely jpegs and zip files which are compressed already!

    What am I missing here? I'm guessing it's a permission issue but I have no idea what that'd entail.
