Scheduled backup eats disk space

    I have a daily scheduled backup set up through Plesk that uploads one of my domains to an external FTP server. The domain in question has 2GB of data and every day my overall disk space usage goes up 2GB. This increase doesn't show up in the Domains screen and I can only see it in the Virtuozzo --> Resources screen. The Local Repositories backups shows nothing about this either.

    Does Plesk keep the temporary files it generates for the backups hidden somewhere?

    As you would expect, I'm quickly running out of disk space.

    Any ideas?

    PS: My server runs Plesk 8.3.0.
