So some time ago I tried to set a scheduled backup using the backups app in ubuntu. However when it ran it completely filled up a 2TB hard drive when my system drive was only 64gb. I couldnt figure out how to get it to stop backing up the drive the backup file was saved too. So I stopped the backup and deleted the backup.tar file, or so I thought but it keeps re-appearing each week. I've looked at the backups app and it shows its turned off. I'm guessing it scheduled in something else? It seems to show up on a weekly basis.
