Files does not exist errors

i have at least 10 veeam endpoint installations in our company and we had very often the error that backup can not procceed because a certain vbk file does not exist.
I'm 100% sure that nobody can delete or rename this file except me as admin.
Whats the reason that veeam agent wants to merge with a file that does not exist anymore in the repository?
By the way with the new Agent for Windows Beta the same issue appeared to day after 12 flawless backups.

Hi Simon,
Since you state 12 flawless backups (once a day?) I am going to assume that you have a retention period of that number.

What happens is, the first backup is a VBK, and then the others are always incremental (VIB). But when the retention period is over, we need to merge the VBK with the oldest VIB. I think it is in that process that things go wrong.

Is the VBK available at the backup location?
