Restore LXC from Proxmox Backup Server.

I had an LXC which was used for storing ISOs for Proxmox-Clusters.
This LXC has root 8GB and 200GB Data-Mountpoint.
We wanted to move it to another storage, which did not work with not enough Space error. Even there is plenty of space in the CEPH-RBD-Volume.

We then decided to move by using Proxmox Backup Server. So container shutdown and pbs-backup was a no brainer.
But the restore fails with error about not having enough space?

Is there some temp space needed for this? Can this temp folder be changed somehow?
