Case ID 00964468
We backup a Win7 Computer to a Veeam V8 2030 Build Repository Server.
The Server sends Warning with low Disk space, it ignores the global setting with 3% and 10GB. I guess its a bug and our customer sends in a ticket to us each day Backup repository is getting low on free disk space (563,9 GB free of 9,0 TB). Veeam Endpoint Backup 220.127.116.114

This Worked for me, I guess you could push the regestry key through a GPO to your clients.
Create new DWORD values at client machine is a "HKLM\Software\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup\" key BackupRepositoryFreeSpaceThresholdPercent Set it to amount of space you want to give low space warning, in percents. Default value is 10.

I am thinking that when backing up to the VBR repository all the management should happen at the VBR side, while real end user may know nothing about Endpoint being installed on his machine. Does it make sense or regular documented setting on the Endpoint side is more welcome?

@Dima, Yes totally agree the smarts should be at VBR side. Since as you said end point user in this case does not know nor care where the data is being backed up to in most scenarios.
Reason I think this is an issue is the product primarily backs up to locally attached storage thus warning make sense, since this is first public iteration of the product then these speed bumps start to show up. Hence it works in Veeam favor to have such a public forum to gleam real life scenarios to make a better product.
