The compuer failed to take a snapshot of the volume for backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • This only happens somtimes. I can have 5 backups then I will get this message. Then I can have another multi backup with no  problem. I thought it might be from having certain programs open but I closed them all and rebooted and still got the error. Any sugestions?

  • Please try running chkdsk /r (from a command prompt) on all partitions of the client.

  • Hi Marion,
    is there a volume full enough, that there are less than 10% free disk space?
    Are there more related error messages in the event log of the client PC?
    Best greetings from Germany

  • Over 50% disk space left. Last night it did the back without any error messages. No error message in the event log other than is could not take snapshot. Whatever it did last night worked. I'll keep trying to figure this out.
