You would need to add more space on the drive to handle the snap shot.  More than likely the reason why it works for one drive at a time is becasue there is not enough space to hold both in one.

This may be some help :

Error code 156 stands for snapshot error...

1- Size of snapshot mount point.

2- Permission for snapshot mount point..

3-if we using RAW data backup then this should be umounted.
