A backup may be marked Partially Successful due to the Instance probably doesn't exist anymore error

A backup may be marked "Partially Successful" due to the "Instance probably doesn't exist anymore" error

A backup may be marked "Partially Successful" due to the "Instance probably doesn't exist anymore" error:
Error - (instance: i-1234567890abcdef) could not get object from aws. Instance probably doesn't exist anymore
...
Warning - Finished kicking off snapshots, not all started successfully.

This is a result of the customer terminating an instance and not removing it from the policy's Backup Targets.
In order to resolve this issue, please perform one of the following:
1) Manually remove the terminated instancefrom the policy's Backup Targets
or
2) Enable "Auto Target Removal" in the policy

When this option is enabled, the next backup will still be "partially successful", but the terminated instance will be removed from the backup targets, and will no longer affect this policy.
