Hey, so correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't PG Vault use a local location on the server (default seems to be /opt/appdata/plexguide) to create the backups for each app which are then uploaded to gdrive? Once they're uploaded, shouldn't the local files be deleted? My VPS is now full and I can't find anything to delete in the above location.

Thanks for any ideas....

PGVault does remove the tar files from your local system after uploading them, line 337 of pgvault.func
 rm -rf ${tarlocation}/${program_var}.tar 1>/dev/null 2>&1
You can check where the local backup is taking place by running
cat /var/plexguide/data.location
If you don't find anything in this directory (which you shouldn't) then it'd suggest that your space is being filled elsewhere. You can try installing an application like NCDU then running ncdu -x to scan the local filesystem and sort by biggest file.

Let me know if you find any more and I'll help where possible :)
