So i'm getting the above error, however it's always after the back has got to 100% (see below logs)

If i check in the backup location i can see that the backup has been saved and even verified. If i run and the backup manually it also completes fine.

Any ideas ?

My local storage was not fast enough to validate the backups as they finish and were just killing my storage.

I removed "Verify new backups immediately after completion" from Datastore.
