    Hi guys - quick question...

    I've setup server-wide backup on my Plesk 11 on Windows, here:
    Home > Tools & Settings > Backup Manager: Server Repository > Scheduled Backup Settings.

    Everything included in the backup, stored in Server Repository.

    Then I noticed that if a customer has 2gb worth of data in his domain, then after my backup has run, his domain is now taking up 4gb. And after a 2nd backup has run, his domain now takes up 6gb (2gb data + 4gb worth of backups).

    Is there no way that I can do server-wide backups of *everything* without taking up space for customers?

    Thanks in advance for reply.

    Just go into Tools & Settings > Server Preferences and uncheck "backup files created by the administrator" option in
    "Include in the disk space usage calculation" section

    Thank you very much - that seems like it would do the trick :)

    (It was "Server Settings" though, not "Server Preferences")
