[Solved] Enough space not available to perform backup
Enough space not available to perform backup
Original Title - Failure using Win backup. Failed due to lack of space on backup drive. Not true. I have 45 MB to back up on my main disk. The backup disk has 75 GB free space. The backup disk is external USB and I can see it, make new folders on it and delete files or folders on it so it would seem to be quite functional. Why is it telling me there is not enough space? But more importantly How can I backup my system using Windows backup?
