Is it possible to set a reserved space on a VEEAM backup repository, so the volume can't completely get full?

For example to keep 10GB of free space available?

No, you cannot.  The Backup Repositories cannot have any reservations on space

What you can do however is to create a Windows share with a hard storage quotas, and then add a repository that points to this SMB share instead of having the repository using a folder on a server.  The storage quota will prevent Veeam from using the limit you set.  This won't be completely foolproof though - if you set a quota of 100 GB on a drive that has 110 - and another administrator uses up 50 GB, then Veeam still can gobble up the rest as it won't go over its storage quota.  It's an idea though.

By the way, feel free to suggest it as a product enhancement on Veeam Forums.  Veeam has a good reputation of listening to users requests.  It would be nice to have either a percentage or set amount of "reserve" which must be available to prevent the disk from going full and potentially causing other non-veeam related problems.
