Is there a feature in Veeam B&R that will prevent multiple hidden snapshots in case of errors in the backupjob?
Recently I saw this in a solution from a other vendor, where multiple backup failure jobs created snapshots that got stuck after each job. The result was suddenly 200 hidden snapshots on a VM after some weeks.

Yes, we have this feature. We track every snapshot we create, and if a job fails to remove its snapshot (or just don't get a chance to due to a backup server crash), the following job runs will attempt to remove left over snapshot automatically before creating a new one.
