Windows 7: Backup "silly" issue - won't backup

Backup "silly" issue - won't backup

Trying to backup on an newly formatted exterior 1.5TB drive and I get this message:

"The service cannot be started, either because itis disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it (0x80070422)"

OK, so I keep trying and I get this:

"There is not enough disk space to create that volume shadow copy on the storage location. Make

sure that, for all volumes to be backed up, the minimum required disk space for shadow copy

creation is available. This applies to both the backup storage destination and volumes included in

e backup. Minimum requirement For volumesless than 500 megabytes, the minimum is 50

megabytes of free space. For volumes more thon 500 megabytes, the minimum is 320 megabytes

of free space. Recommended:
At least 1 GB of free disk space on each volume if volume size

is more than 1 gigabyte. (0x80780119)"

But what is weird is that I DO have enabled (external) device and it is 1.5TB

Anybody can offer suggestions?...thanks

Thanks for your input, but been there & done that. I did a complete format for the backup drive (1.5TB) and it tells me there's not enough space. I think the issue comes from my backing up the SSD drive (Samsung 750MB) to a "normal" HD (WD Black) have been unable to locate anything on the Samsung site to see how to backup their drives - weird....maybe they just expect you to merely make a copy of it; maybe they think their stuff is so good it doesn't need tobe backed up......anyway...still trying

Increase it on C. About 10GB is enough. Do you have a partition called "system reserved" ... size about 100MB?
