Hi, can you please state how you invoked the command (which flags where set). Note that you can exclude certain content from a backup by setting an --exclude <path-or-glob> pattern. See https://pbs.proxmox.com/docs/pxar/description.html#creating-an-archive

Bash:
#!/bin/bash

# Connect VPN
systemctl start wg-quick@wg1

# proxmox-backup-client
export PBS_PASSWORD=supers3cret
proxmox-backup-client backup root.pxar:/ --repository 192.168.1.22:HOSTS --all-file-systems --exclude /run
proxmox-backup-client prune host/xps9310 --repository 192.168.1.22:HOSTS --keep-daily 7 --keep-weekly 1 --keep-monthly 12
unset PBS_PASSWORD

# Disconnect VPN
systemctl stop wg-quick@wg1

Yes, I can exclude /run manually, but it shouldn't be necessary. The /run directory will always fail, and shouldn't be included in --all-file-systems if you ask me. :)
