Problem with ESXi 7.0.X There is no more space for virtual disk - False positive

Hi, we have a serious problem with our host Esxi 7.0.0 (Build 16324942) installed by HPE-Custom-AddOn_700.0.0.10.5.5-46 (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) iso.
We have 12 virtual machine powered on, every day, in random order some virtual machine is blocked for this info message:

Info:
There is no more space for virtual disk 'VMSERVER-01.vmdk'. You might be able to continue this session by freeing disk space on the relevant volume, and clicking Retry. Click Cancel to terminate this session.

But the message is false positive because there is a lot of free space on both local datastore and inside virtual machine.
All virtual machine is backuped every night by veeam software, i have checked orfaned snapshot but there aren't any open snapshot active.
The physical server is in good state, all components (RAID, CPU, RAM) are ok.

Do yo have idea about this problem, can you help me, please?

Hi, thanks for your reply, I have already seen this post but at this moment we have 96GB RAM and 20GB free.
Only one VM has been assigned 32GB RAM, How can I check if the problem is too much memory being used?
