Also wondering if I there's any reason I can't just create another volume formatted correctly and copy the files there and then point veeam to that location? Will that constitute a reseed process instead of moving it back?

4k is the maximum size, that's what /L does and you can't tell it what size to use, without /L it's 1024, with /L it's 4096

We are trying to backup 3.6 TB file server VM and it is keep failing and Veeam Support sent me the following KB

Workaround mentioned in this KB

1. Disable Windows deduplication - -- We are not using deduplication
2. Un-dedupe backup files: copy backup files to a temporary folder, delete original backup files and move copied files back to the original location. -- not sure what to do here?????
3. Disable NTFS compression on backup repository volume. ----How to do this ???????????????

Support are working on email only!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are new to Veeam and support is not great so far!!!!

Any help will be greatly appreciated.....
