Windows 7: Backup Error code: 0x81000019 (Pleas help) SSD 60GB

03 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Backup Error code: 0x81000019 (Pleas help) SSD 60GB

Hi All

Error code: 0x81000019
after each fail i get the same error message: "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." and then it gives the options to try to run backup again or change backup settings.

when i expand the details at the bottom, this is all i get:
Backup time: (date/time i attempted)
Backup location: Expansion Drive (J: ) my external hard drive.
Error code: 0x81000019

IT shouldn't be a space issue.
System c: 60GB SSD
D:HD Raptor 139GB
E:HD 300GB
F:HD 230GB

I Try this.

Verify that you have a System Reserved partition of 100MB (MY System 98,9)
If yes, right click on this volume and select Properties.
View used:62,3 free space:36,6

You must have around 40 MB free space for backup to complete successfully!
My system 98,9 need 100MB need more space reserved
Need help to free up space 36,6MB to 40MB

Is it a Easy way to free space for Backup in Theory I need 3,4MB

please help
