Yes, there was a regression with this when adopting the newer prune "keep-daily",
"keep-weekly", ... logic. It acts quite different internally, but the storage
special case for maxfiles==0 was handled rather implicit, thus this did not
rang any alarm bells. I transformed it to a more explicit logic and we'll
add some more extensive test for this special case, so that it won't happen again.

The fix is packaged in pve-manager version 6.2-15, currently available on pvetest.
You can either add the pvetest repository[0], do `apt update && apt install pve-manager`,
then drop the test repo again, or manually download and install it, with using
`apt install` this still checks if the package is valid (i.e., signed by a trusted

# wget http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pve/dists/buster/pvetest/binary-amd64/pve-manager_6.2-15_amd64.deb
# apt install ./pve-manager_6.2-15_amd64.deb
