shrink volume RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a scom database that has 150gb allocated for recovery point volume and used only 25gb... so i try to shrink volume and i have this error:

    Windows cannot shrink currently due to the presence of data towards the end of the volume. As older recovery points expire, Windows should be able to shrink the volume

    I try every day to shrink the volume and i cantttttttt

    any ideas?

  • Hi,

    I would remove the protected server from the protection group, remove the disk based backups and then re add to teh protection group.
