    I would just like to also add a direct response to this "If there is uploading error, you need to fix the reason and then start upload process again"

    That's what we're asking.. actually how to start the upload process again? There does not seem to be a way to do this without redoing the whole backup process.

    Hi I would like to add that this would be a great feature. My backups regularly fail to upload to FTP on Plesk 12.5.30. When this happens the only way I can fix it is to delete the backup and run it again. My backups are about 20Gb and takes a long time to create. It would be very nice to be able to retry the ftp upload process via the Plesk interface, or know which files I need to move from /var/lib/psa/dumps/ to make this happen.

    Saying, download the file and upload "should download backup from server and upload handy [manually]" is not really an option. 20Gb is too much. Even if it weren't, how would Plesk know I had put it in ftp storage?

    My ftp storage is actually on the same server, I then move the backup file to Amazon S3 using a cron jon.

    Please Plesk, the backup feature needs some love and brought up to date with modern technologies!
