Legacy scheduled VPS backup tasks fail due to insufficient limit for backup space on subscriptions.
The failing backup tasks keep rescheduling, with each new run they create a new backup on the backups storage.
The backups do not fit into the ordered backup space:
1001324 Scheduled backups diskspace Usage 8.5 GB Limit 10 GB Available 1.5 GB

The behavior is acknowledged as a software issue CCU-15494 (Could not commit transaction. taskScheduledBackupVPS fails)
There is no way to prevent task failures, so it is required to delete the backups manually.
To avoid the massive problem, it can be suggested to increase the backup space limit for all subscriptions temporarily.
