    My C: disk is a Corsair 128Gb Solid State Drive. How can I increase this value, and what is the recommended value on this size of drive? Could this also be the cause of my BF3 client freezing and closing every time it wipes the shadow copy?

    Sorry, I copied the wrong one. The error was when it was aborted

  • Hi,

    this might be due to system protection disk space limit configured. to incresae teh limit:

    Click on start and then right click on computer.
    b. Choose properties and then click on system protection in the left pane.
    c. Now click on Configure and under Disk Space Usage increase the space used. To increase the space, slide the slider to right side.
    d. Click Apply and then Ok.

    Volume shadow copies should not interfere with running applications. I think it is unlikely this causes performance issues in other applications, unless they are very IO intensive/sensitive.

  • Hi Shadow,

    Please try the following suggestions to troubleshoot the issue.

    1. Check how much free disk space is available on the system volume in Windows Explorer.
    a. Open Control Panel / System / Advanced System Settings.Select the System Protection Tab.In the Protection Settings box, select the System Drive (Usually C:).
    b. Click the Configure Button. In the Disk Space Usage section, use the slider to increase the amount of disk space allocated to System Restore.Apply/OK.

    2. You can also use the Disk Cleanup tool to remove all but the latest System Restore Points. This will likely give you back a large amount of free disk space.
    a. Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup. Select to clean up the files for All Users. You will have the option of selecting which files to remove.
    b. Select the Clean Up System Files button. This will show a new Tab called More Options. Click this tab and in the System Restore and Shadow Copies section,
    click the Cleanup Button. This will delete all but the most recent System Restore Point.

    3. Check the available space on the source disk. If there is little available space, perform one of the following actions:
    a. Move some data to another disk.
    b. Delete the existing shadow copy data.

    If the source disk has more than 10 percent available space, change the maximum size limit of the shadow copy to a larger value.
    We recommend that you set the maximum size limit to a value that equals 10% of the volume size. Or, you can store the shadow copy data on another disk.

    Note: Have you set the maximum size limit of the shadow copy to "unlimited". This behavior provides better version control for each file. However, this behavior can consume a large amount of disk space. Make sure that you have enough free disk space before you set the maximum size limit to "unlimited."
