Backup to Amazon S3 failing

Having the following error, assuming it's not Amazon that full so is it an issue that I need to have a certain amount of spare space on the local filesystem?

Backup failed! See the progress output above for the reason why. Total backup time was 17 minutes, 27 seconds.

That error indicates that you've run out of space on your system - perhaps the filesystem for /tmp is full?
