A work around or way to protect against this is to create an
appropriate sized blank file in the backup partition.|
I usually create a 1GB blank file:
dd if=/dev/zero of=EmptyFile bs=1M count=1000Then when the backup fails just delete the blank file and run the backup again.
The added benefit of doing this is that it gives you a soft limit and some time to re-organise your drives/partitions.
(Speaking of which it's about time for me to do just that)

Here (attached) is a quick fix i applied to rdiff-backup so i didn't have to start the backup all over, my disk got full and we are (unfortunately) still not using lvm. I am not sure as to the cleanliness of the patch, but it seems to be working fine, hopefully this can be helpful, as i think having a disk full with rdiff- backup is a PITA...
