What problem are you having?
- The event log is filled
with the error Event ID: 7001.
- Shadow copies are being
deleted, but I still have plenty of storage space
The event log is filled with the error Event ID: 7001.
- Cause: A volume that was scheduled to
be shadow copied has been removed or is unavailable. Task Scheduler
is attempting the task and every time the task fails, it writes an
error to the event log.
- Solution: Delete the scheduled task
using Task Scheduler. If you are removing a volume that is being
shadow copied, delete the scheduled task before deleting the volume
so the event log does not fill with errors.
Shadow copies are being deleted, but I still have plenty of storage space available.
- Cause: There is a limit of 64 shadow
copies per volume that can be stored.
- Solution: Adjust the schedule for
creating shadow copies to a rate that retains an appropriate
history of the files without reaching the limit of 64 shadow
