    Same problem here, already set the backup not to overwrite the file but place a new.
    When doing a manual backup local on the disk --> no problem.

    It is impossible to understand what is the problem reason by the description above.
    It would be good to obtain more information. For instance, an error message from backup log.

    You may find backup log in the directory %plesk_dir%\PrivateTemp\PSABackupLogs\<backup_dir>
    where <backup_dir> is formed as the date and the start time of operation in the format yyyymmdd.hh

    This problem has been solved for I while now, it was because of too poor I/O performance for the backup on that particular server.
    The server received a lot of spam, and the virusscanner took to much I/O performance because of that.
