R+etrospec 7.7 - Same issue

Recommended Posts

I am again using 7.7 after an unusual issue with 7.6. W+hen I first upgraded to 7.7 when it became available I also received this error with 7,7 - Insufficient storage space available.


Here is the log:

There is more than 150 GB available on the storage device. Why does this error occur?


R was attempting to backup up a Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit client. R runs on a Win 7 Pro PC.

Since the error is happening for open file backup the insufficient storage space error is mostly likely referring to the C: drive of the machine that it is trying to backup. Retrospect uses the volume shadow copy service within Windows and it by default uses space on the C: drive when creating snapshots.

Further to this issue, the client application error log reports a VSS error at the time of the backup. The VSS error log states that the error is typically due to the requestor app not allowing the callback service access to the app.
