CheckBox Don't save backup files on the server side

When the backup operation is performed EMS SQL Backup uploads the backup data to cloud storages "on the fly" at the same time when the stream is received from SQL Server. If this option is switched on the data is not written to the local server disk. This allows saving free storage space but if errors occur when uploading to all the selected cloud locations there will be no valid backup file(s) available.
