    Trouble with vzdump/backups (especially windows)

    My linux VMs back up fine, but the windows ones do not. I was using zstd and the backups kept freezing (I couldn't stop the process without restarting the node), so I am trying gzip now. This time, the process at least ends without hanging, but there are still errors on the windows VMs. I'm...
