      Description

      **Reported in Launchpad by Robert Wunderer last update 23-12-2016 17:04:10

      Since version 2.2.10, as a fix for this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+bug/1413044, XtraBackup no longer removes *.qp files on decompressing. This can lead to problems when the target filesystem is not big enough for both compressed and decompressed backup files.

      The same applies for encrypted files of course.

      A solution might be to add an option --remove-compressed and/or --remove-encrypted to enable the user to optionally revert back to the old behaviour in cases where the risk of a corrupted restore is acceptable e.g. because the original backup still exists in another place or the "backup" was the result of a hotcopy from a live host.
