    Hi!

    I have Proxmox also running in a hosted environment where i only geht ftp backup space.
    So i added a curlftpfs mount on the local filesystem. There i can't backup a large VM because it eats up all my RAM. It would be nice to have an option, that does not tar the Archive, but simply rsync the incremental data.

    I found some code in the openvz forums:

    Did you guys review this?

    I suggest to set up a cron job which does an rsync.
