I have a container with Turkey linux running a Nextcloud server, this container has approximately 400GB occupied out of a total of 800GB but when backing up the error, both the local backup and the backup using PBS

Do you see the snapshot for the 102 LXC when you run zfs list -t snapshot command? or pct listsnapshot 102?
When running the command zfs list -t snapshot I get this message: no datasets available and command pct listsnapshot 102 : `-> current You are here!
