CPS archives removed by VSS

Created: 19 Nov 2013 | 4 comments

We run Backup Exec 2010 on 2008R2, and Backup Exec CPS

CPS takes 3 snpashots a day, the last one kept,

Twice now the VSS service has created an event id 35 and 13

The shadow copies of volume F: were aborted because the shadow copy storage failed to grow(35)

The shadow copy of volume F: could not grow its shadow copy storage on volume F:(13)

 

All shadow copy services, are disabled on the disks in question(F, G, H), and all disk have >50% free space available

 

I have tried using the search function,but cant seen to find a resolution.....

this seems to be related to the permissible size for the shadow copy.
have you checked the "maximum size limit" in the settings of Volume Shadow Copy, for the drives.

you may try changing it to "no limit" and check.

Is there any other application installed on the server, which may be taking the snapshots of the drive.
