    I just realized today that ftp can only move a max of about 2 gigs per file so remote back ups max out at this size per domain correct?

    Thanks, Charles

    What is your remote FTP running ? Pure-ftpd?

    You need to recompile your pure-ftpd on the remote ftp with this option:

    --with-largefile

    That will allow bigger file sizes beyond 2 GB and of course your filesystems have to support it.
