error message 0x8004231F RRS feed

  • Question

  • Vista ... I can no longer back up files on my external hard drive -- I get the error message "Insuffient storage available to creat either a shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data.


    What does this mean?  What do I need to do to enable back ups??

  • Hi,

    Please make sure the external hard driver have sufficent storage available first. Or we can backup to local hard driver like E driver if there is, and then copy the backup file to external hard drive.

    Meanwhile, you can consider improve performance by defragmenting your hard disk
