Not enough disk space

Post by surfgate » Mon Nov 19, 2012 1:11 am

I am really struggling to understand and resolve the following issue. At the end of the backup process, during the final merge process, I keep having the 'not enough disk space' error reported. (See log extract below)
The N: Drive is an external NTFS drive and had close to 2T of free space. The backups (#'s 474,475,476) it is trying to merge total only 30gig.

Any help or advice would be hugely appreciated?

Hi,

Please make sure you have enough free disk space on C: drive as here will be the merge location unless you changed the temporary folder location from Tools->Options->Application folders.
