That's a bug that ought to be fixed.

However, an option would be to leave the backups where they are, but
have a cron job that runs after the backup happens, and copies the files
somewhere else (the desktop, an external harddrive, etc.)

This also means that you have two backup copies: one on the server, and
one in the location off the server that the files go to.
