Repository: space used greater than the total capacity.

Post by SerSunal »

Hello everyone.
I have the following doubt or problem that I do not understand.
In the repository view, one of these has a total capacity of 50GB, 25GB free and 527GB occupied.
I do not understand how it can be that the space used is greater than the total capacity of the repository.

No. It is an NFS share presented from a storage

Well then it’s most likely that veeam has written a total of 527gb but your storage is deduplicating and or compressing the data so it show only 25gb being used.
What storage is the NFS on and did you enable any efficiency there.
Otherwise the NFS mount may report a wrong size. What do you see as volume size on the nfs source for this export?
