/var/lib/psa/dump filling up

    Hullo there,

    I'm running Plesk 10.1.1 on Ubuntu 2.6.18-028stab070.14.

    All of my domain backups write to an external FTP server, but nonetheless every week or so I'm getting an message telling me that my Plesk is full, and the server starts to become erratic. When I see where the space is being lost, it is always in /var/lib/psa/dumps which fills up with backups.

    I have done a search for this and can see that it's a semi-common problem, but for most people the problem is in /var/lib/psa/dumps/tmp. Mine aren't going into tmp, just straight into /var/lib/psa/dumps

    I wondered if anyone has had this problem before, and knows why this is happening, and if there is an efficient way to stop it? It's fairly annoying having to manually delete backups from this location every week.
