Where are the Backup Files in Plesk?

By default, they’re located in

/var/lib/psa/dumps

It’s useful to clear this directory out every once in a while, especially because Plesk doesn’t overwrite old backups.

So if you ever find that you’re using 60GB of storage on your system, but are fully aware that your entire site shouln’t be bigger than 100MB, then this is a good place to start looking.
