Restore failing due to inadequate disk space RRS feed

  • Question

  • DPM 2012, restoring an Exchange 2010 SP3 mailbox. The restore fails after several hours, "The operation failed because of inadequate disk space. (ID 2035 Details: There is not enough space on the disk (0x80070070))." The recommended action is to "Increase the amount of free space on volume \\?\C:\ on the destination computer...."

    First: The recovery database is larger than the database that we are restoring (we restore the database and then extract the mailbox). Thus I do not understand why it tells me I need to increase the amount of free space on the destination computer and why it would say I need to do it at \\?\C:\. I assume it is because I use mount points and they are on C:\?

    Second: We have done lots of restores in the recent past from the same DPM server to the same server that has this recovery database.

    Third: I have re-tried the restore, same result. Is it possible that the old restore that still exists on the recovery database is not getting overwritten? If that is the case how do I delete the old backup? Do I just dismount the "Recovery Database" and then go to the mount point location and delete the recovery.edb?

  • I figured it out after reading an article that had the exact same issue. The solution was to dismount the recovery database (I used the EMC to do that) and delete it along with the log files....it (the old restore) simply was not getting overwritten by the new restore, very odd. Then, mount the database (I used the EMC) and simply use the retry option in DPM.........worked great.
