SQB2MTF issue

I have an odd issue...
using either the SQB2MTF GUI or cmdline, I end up with a native backup file that is truncated at 150GBs.
this happens under the following circumstance:
converting a file that it's location or destination or both are not a local HD.

I have a NAS setup as a ISCSI drive mapped to a folder on the host machine, and the conversion truncates the mtf file silently -- no error, it claims success :shock:

I tried converting across to/from a network drive -- same issue.
as long as both source and destination are local HDs it works.

My question is what can I do to fix this? I don't have enough space to hold the sqb and native backup on the local HDs of the server I need to restore to, and converting then transfering to that server defeats have the reason for having compressed backups.
buying more copies of sqlbackup isn't in the cards for quite a while, so...?
