Backup Image Error / Cannot Create Shadow Copy / VSS error
I am trying to create scheduled backups for my computer on an external drive (H:\) and am having a bunch of trouble. I had one successful attempt but did not have "create image of C:\" checked. I chose to check it and attempt again. No success. I unchecked the image and now cannot create any backup. I received the following error:
A shadow copy could not be created. Please check "VSS" and "SPP" application event logs for more information. Details: Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data.
It can't be a space issue because I have 260GB of free space on H:\ The only thing else on my external drive is my iTunes library. I've posted a similar thread before but got no where.
Please advise any thing. I'd feel more comfortable knowing I have backups.

As long as you have 50MB free that's not the problem.
Try from start orb search enter
Check that both
1) Volume Shadow Copy
2) Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider
are set to Manual (recommended). Automatic should be ok.
What is the specific error number/message you get if you just attempt a system image manually from the "Create a System Image" on the left of the Backup & Restore main screen.
