Duplication Issue - Out Of Disk Space RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have 3.78TB of storage.  Currently using 1.38Tb.  I have left 2.4TB.

    I keep recieving the following alert;-

    Duplication is failling for shared folder PHOTOS.  There is not enough space available to maintain a copy on more than one hard disk.

    What do I need to do please?

    Thank you.

    Steve.

  • Ok all 5 hard disks are part of STORAGE HARD DRIVES.

    Pie Chart showing;-

    Total Size 3.78 TB
    Free Space 2.37 TB


    Shared Folder 1.1tb
    Duplication 259 GB
    PC Backups 14kb
    System 20 GB
    Free Space 2.4TB


    Photos share = 26.04 GB

    That sounds normal enough to me.  I would suggest rebooting your server and if that doesn't work, you might need to logon to the server desktop (which is unsupported), look at the Task Manager and see if there is a service running called DEMigrator.exe.

    How many hard drives do you have connected to your server?  What are the sizes of each drive?  Are you using RAID at all?

  • Hi,

    No RAID.

    Disk 0 = 1.5tb
    Disk 1 = 500 gb
    Disk 2 = 1.5 tb
    Disk 3 = 400 gb
    Disk 4 = 250

    So 5 hard disks.

    So 5 hard disks.

    Are all 5 hard drives part of the storage pool (or are you using some of them for backing up your server shares)?  Does it show 3.78TB of total space in the WHS Console (the part with the pie chart)?  How many GBs is your Photos share?  Have  you tried disabling Folder Duplication that share, waiting a few minutes, then enabling it again?

  • Thank you.  All seems to be working now.

    One other thing, any reason why mapped drives to the WHS box in Windows 7 / Vista are all showing as RED - ie out of disk space.  It shows the following;-



    2.35TB Free of 1.34 (it seems to be round the wrong way, thus showing as red - full), which its not.

    Any ideas?

  • This is a cosmetic bug, which has been introduced with a solution, which did offer Vista clients the full storage size.
    Before it was so, that only the free space on drive D: on the server was presented - and Vista clients rejected to copy anything, if the selected amount of files was more than the free space on server drive D:.
    Since now the total size can be larger than drive D:, Explorer is somewhat irritated. Since that is part of the Windows code, which is not in the hands of the Windows Home Server team, getting this fixed seems to be rather difficult.
