Please check the workarounds described above


Thanks for this information, and the merge. I'll test those registry keys after I'm done evaluating another backup software.

JFTR, the complete term was:
"[04.09.2015 08:08:43] <01> Warning You are running low disk space on HP_RECOVERY"
although this partition wasn't used for storing backup files.

Thank for the heads up Wolfgang! This warning refers to VSS limitation and possible failure in creating the VSS snapshot for the volume if it lacks the free space. The key above should help to ignore it.

[MERGED] Free Space Warning only for Endpoint Backups

Veeam Logoby homerjnick » Fri Jul 08, 2016 10:20 am

I use my Veeam Repository to host my VM backups as well as Endpoint backups.

I have set the repository to notify with a warning if the repository is under a certain percentage of free space left. At present we are not breaching this and all our VM backups report successful.

Out first line support advised that some backups have a warning that there is low space on the repository and it is only the Endpoint backup emails that show this.

I can't see any options within the Control Panel of each physical server backed up with Endpoint to set the threshold for this but Endpoint backups are NOT using the threshold set in Veeam B&R GUI > Options > Notifications.

How can I set this for Endpoint backups so that the emails generated for Endpoint backups use the same threshold of percentage of free space remaining on my repository as VM backups do?

Hi Nick,

Threshold is managed locally at every Endpoint and is not somehow related to VBR settings.

Create a key at VEB:
Code: Select all
HKLM\Software\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup\
DWORD
BackupRepositoryFreeSpaceThresholdPercent


Set amount of space is percents (default is 10%)
