Tasks to create backup of a webspace fail with the error:

Task name   Backup 'Webspace "s123456.instanturl.tld"' into group 'backupgroup123456'
Method name taskCreateBackupData on SCREF:BackupManager:0
Last execution output   Destination host 'HOSTNAME' (#XXX), IP '' : write /custbackups//backup_data-123.tar: No space left on device (errno 28).


As explained in the error, there is no free space on the backup server:

# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2              20G  2.2G   17G  12% /
/dev/sda3             365G  365G     0 100% /custbackups
/dev/sda1              99M   39M   56M  42% /boot
tmpfs                 2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /dev/shm


In order to fix this issue, please increase disk space of /custbackups partition and re-run the failed task(s) after that.
