Start the backup only if your server has the specified amount of free disk space (in megabytes) *
why is the input field so small?
why only 5 digits?
we need GB!!! or?
From the comments it became clear that the reason for this feature request was that only a limited number of digits could be entered into the input field. This however has long been resolved. Technically it should be quite easy to enter MB instead of GB, too. Changing the field to GB will actually decrease flexibility, because the granularity decreases. For that reason we are closing this feature request.
@Alexander: yes, that's right, but you can only set a maximum of 99999MB, nothing more.
what do you say now.
many updates came, but none of them were fixed
Dear user: It's not that hard to convert from MB to GB, you can round it this way: 1000 MB = 1 GB approximately. Using GB will only introduce confusion with decimal point separator, which varies accross countries and regions.
At the moment plesk creates backup while there is not enough diskspace left. This will happen when using external ftp backups.
This could lead to serious outages on a system, because the system could run out of diskspace.
A calculate feature would be nice, so it actually first calculate a system has enough diskspace free.
my full server backups come out at a higher number for MB's than i can physically type into the input field so i would call this a bug report not a feature request.
Dito - A Megabyte value are very strange :-P
