Hallo liebe Community,
ich bin neu hier und trete leider mit einem Problem an euch. Denn das Backup einer VM funktioniert seit einem Tag nicht mehr...
Genügend Speicher ist auf der Backup Platte noch vorhanden die Konfiguriert ist.
Vieleicht hat jemand ja eine Idee, bin mit meinem Latein am Ende.
Danke im Vorraus.
