    I want to make a backup in dropbox of a subscription with a samba volume with 50tb. But, Plesk use local space for this. I try without compress but it's the same. There is any way to perform this??

    Hi @Gaston Gelhorn,

    Let me clarify that Plesk creates archives locally by parts before uploading them to remote storage. 

    Parts of backup files are created and uploaded simultaneously, thus, it is recommended to have free space equal at least to half of the full backup size.

    Maxim Krasikov sounds all good but HOW do I free space?

    I deleted backup files manually

    I even installed Diskspace Usage Viewer and did a cleanup and here comes the very shocking part of it, having had 37GB out of 43GB used before, After the cleanup the usage jumped up to 47GB.  

    What? Disk Cleanup ADDS to the disk instead of subtracting? What's the cleanup good for if it ADDs on?

    Sorry but this goes beyond my comprehension.

    Keep the question begging!  --- HOW can I cleanup my disk so I FREE space?
