How do I change the backup file location for JIRA 5.0.1

Hi, sorry if this is obvious but I'm just not finding the info on how to do it. I'm looking to change the location in which JIRA backup files are stored due to space limitations on the JIRA server. If anyone can direct me to info (or describe here) how to effect this change I'd really appreciate it.

Take a look at the last user comment on

and see if that works.

Edit: You will most likely also have to change the backup service by unchecking the "use default directory".
