volsnap error & backup failing

Hello,

I am getting an error for the past 5 days and the Rubrik backup is failing at the same time...


Log Name: System
Source: Volsnap
Date: 9/15/2021 8:37:20 PM
Event ID: 25
Task Category: None
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: VRPSCCMSQL01.ad
Description:
The shadow copies of volume G: were deleted because the shadow copy storage could not grow in time. Consider reducing the IO load on the system or choose a shadow copy storage volume that is not being shadow copied.


The two drives are
133617-vrpsccmpr01-drives-g-h.png

Then I tried to check the shadow copy:

I checked the drives and there is space:

I do not see any error or space issue ... what could be wrong?

Thanks,
Dom

Hello,

Thank for reaching out.

  1. Please check space usage of Shadowcopy by running following cmd.

vssadmin list shadowstorage


  1. Open a command prompt as admin as enter: vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=c: /on=c: /maxsize=unbounded
    do this for all drives , on Windows 10 PCs, turn off System Restore in Computer->Properties


  2. Adjust page file to 1.5 times the amount of RAM from System - > Advanced -> Performance, click Settings.

Hope this Helps,

Thank you.
