Good afternoon everyone, my name is Jorge.
I have a problem with a proxmox 5.1-41.
when trying to restore a backup of a virtual machine it gives me the following error, and I can not do the recovery, and I need it because I do not have another backup.

The error its:

restore vma archive: lzop -d -c /mnt/pve/BACKUPMADRID/dump/vzdump-qemu-103-2019_01_23-15_28_42.vma.lzo|vma extract -v -r /var/tmp/vzdumptmp9179.fifo - /var/tmp/vzdumptmp9179

can anybody help me?

I guess you have not enough space for the restore.
Good morning, the lack of space is not possible, it has an 8tb hard drive whole to be able to restore the machine.
the original machine is 2500 GB
so I understand that it has more than enough space.
any other idea.
Thank you.
