Okay, so, I have a Veeam B&R server performing backups and replications at different intervals and windows during the day. These backup to disk and some older data going to tape. We move any data that we're happy to move to tape over to a folder and have a "Tape Job" that "Files to Tape Backup" every week.
The server has 11TB disk space. At the moment it is over 90% used. But, when the backups run, I'm getting alerted because the disk shrinks down to 1GB of free space. After the backup runs (or pauses because it's out of window), the disk space frees up. I'm unsure if this is normal behaviour. I'll be adding more disk space, but in the interim, I want to make sure the backup is safely working.
It’s supposed to be automatic, but actually you have to push this button.
