I've noticed that if you run out of storage your current backupjob will be corrupt and the backupjob fails with:
Rolling back changes made by incomplete job run
Error: Root element is missing.
This has happened to me twice since upgrading to 9.5 and the same error both times. Before upgrading this wasn't a problem, if you run out of space of course the job will fail but run the next time if there where space available.
I've opened a case with the support. Got the expected answer - Create a new backup set.
I tried to explain that I see this as bug introduced in 9.5, but got no understanding in return.
Is this know? Will it be fixed or this is how it will work now?
The strangest in this story is when I today was going to copy the current backupfiles to an other storage and create a new backup set. Now I notice that the job has run during the night, and all old backup files are completely gone?! Only one full backup file left in the folder!
This last thing I haven't been able to recreate.

Dont have space to create another full backup, or create a new backup job. Tried the below but did not work out.
The second option is more involved, has some caveats, and is not guaranteed to work but may save some time.
Verify the job itself is not currently running.
Once verified go into the backup repository and locate the backup files for the job having the issue.
Move the VBM file to another location without deleting it.
After the VBM file has been moved, return to Veeam B&R and run a normal backup operation.
Note: This also works for PerVM and SOBR based backups.
Note 2: When moving the VBM, do so to a path outside the backup repository path. For instance, if the repository path is C:\Backups, move the VBM to either the root of the drive or another path from the drive. If it is placed in another subfolder of C:\Backups, and the repository is re-scanned, Veeam will attempt to import the VBM as a backup.
