Solution


Workaround:
Please re-configure C drive that has the default cluster size of 4KB.

Generally a volume that has cluster size of 8KB or 16KB  is created when the volume size is more than 16TB.

Veritas recommends that the system volumes for backup and restore should be less than 16 TB. For details, please refer to README. This is a link to README for Veritas System Recovery 21.
