That is a bug/missing feature in the db-move script. You could look at 
it in the dbscripts.git:

Line 112 needs cp changed to mv I guess.

That script iterates over the db.tar.gz file, not over the ftp 
directory. There is a cleanup2.sh which iterates over the files. For 
cleaning up, just run /arch/cronjobs/ftpdir-cleanup, it does all of 
those tasks (until the cronjob has been set up).
