DFSR backups complete with Status 1


DFSR backups may complete with Status 1 due to insufficient space in the Shadow Copy Storage Area, or high disk I/O.

Examine the bpbkar log on the client:
10:12:50.147 PM: [2568.2892] <2> tar_base::V_vTarMsgW: WRN - can't open directory: Shadow Copy Components:\User Data\Distributed File System
Replication\DfsrReplicatedFolders\Folder_A\file.txt(WIN32 3: The system cannot find the path specified. )

Examine the Windows System Event logs on the client:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: VolSnap
Event Category: None
Event ID: 25
The shadow copies of volume VolumeName were aborted because the diff area file could not grow in time. Consider reducing the IO load on this system to avoid this problem in the future.

Increase the amount of storage space available for Shadow Copies within the drive properties or change the Shadow Copy storage area location to another drive with sufficient space or less I/O.
