My system backup has not worked correctly for some three months now. I continue to receive and error that there isn't enough space left on my H:/ drive . I have tried removing the files in H;/ in order to free up some space and still get the same error. I have tried to do a complete New backup and it still comes up with an error of "not enough space". What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to get into the system and increase the amount of space in H:/ drive so I can run a backup? Right now I only have 2 Gig of space available in a 350 Gig hard drive. I would like to open it up to about 10Gig if possible.
Do I really need the backup on my C:/ if I have an external drive that is used to backup every week anyway? Does having it on the C;/ make it easier if I need to do a restore at some point?

Any help here is greatly appreciated.



Thank you for the tip...but I still would like to know about how I can configure the H:/ and make it larger. Can anyone help?

hi,,, its always a good rule of thumb to make backups to a totally different drive incase the original drive dies or becomes corrupt,,, i would back up to the external drive only,,,,,
good luck.
