Encrypted large files cant decrypt

I encrypt with the folowing command on a server a backup and send it on an
other server over FTP:

"tar -czf - $mysql_backup_file $directory_to_backup | gpg --no-tty --batch
--always-trust --recipient $id_number --encrypt | curl --netrc-optional
--silent --show-error --ftp-create-dirs --retry 10 -u $ftp_user:$ftp_pwd
ftp://$ftp_host/$ftp_dir$full_backup_file -T -"

This works with some Backups around 35Mbytes. But I've tested it also with
an 2.79Gbyte large Backup-File. It runs to the end, but the final encrypted
File is corrupt. When I try to decrypt it, it says, "no encrypted data

Has, someone an idear, where the problem could be?

Thanks a lot!
