    Been using remote backp for years and never had a problem. At least, not until /dev/hdc3 hit 66% on the remote server. Now any new backup files (beyond 66%) have a file size of zero.

    The weird thing is, the drive is not full. I can verify that by copying a few gigs from hda onto the backup drive and it works fine ... files are there. However, the moment the remote server tries to backup to this dirve, file size is zero... as if it were full.

    I have checked and double checked ... it happens at 66% every time.

    I have also checked on the originating server. No problem there. The tar.gz file is being generated correctly.

    Anyone seen this before?

    Quota issue? Is the "user" doing the backup the same as the "user" you're doing the tests with? If the former doesn't have root privs, but the latter does, that might explain why test results are fine, but actual operation fails.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I actually tired the backup as root because I thought it may be that ... but it wasn't :(

    Think I found it.
    The conf file /etc/pure-ftpd.conf has this line in it:

    Mine was set to 66 (%). I changed it to 99 now it works fine ;)
