Thanks for the reply, i have the agent running on the webgui but not sure if its really installed as its running pfSense2.3.5 not sure if thats the cause of it?
if you did not install the guest agent in the vm itself, it does not run, so please do that or deactivate the guest agent on the gui again

Hi, I am looking into this same problem.
I already have the agent installed as instructed, but I still get the same errors.

---------------------------

It takes sometimes 2 hours to do the backup just because it sits there waiting for over 1 hour. Even that the 2 drives are 100G, one is used to like 20% the other about 1%, it is not the size of the drives.

Any solution to this?
