I’m having some issues with re-running a backup of a VM. I was having issues with missing chunks so in the end removed all snapshot references and did a prune and check (from another machine) to clean up.
But now when I try to get the backup of this VM to run for the first time I keep getting this input/output error.
I believe it could be due to my NAS being a little slow at times and perhaps the requests are timing out? Is there a way to get vertical to wait a little longer before giving up?
