Martin, it sounds like you mounted the 100GB partition to /backup folder and it is a local partition so you don't have to use "Mount Backup Drive as Needed" option. instead set "/backup" in "Default Backup Directory" then run the backups manually with

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --debug

to see if it completes fine. You can find more info about the configuration options at Backup Configuration | cPanel & WHM Documentation and at How to Run a Manual Backup - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation
