As a workaround:
Connect to the server via SSH
Create folder to back up the log files:
# mkdir /root/backup-PPPM-10423
Back up the log files:
# cp -a /var/log/plesk/PMM/*.log* /root/backup-PPPM-10423
Delete the logs from the original location:
# rm -rf /var/log/plesk/PMM/*.log*
Restart the server to make sure there aren't stuck or zombie processes running
