Cause

Backup Exec 2010 and above uses the Temp location of a NTFS volume that is local to the Backup Exec server which has the largest space to perform the recovery. The above error can be observed when the partition runs out of space during the soft recovery process of GRT (Granular Restore Technology), or when the Temp folder is hidden.

 

Solution

 Make sure that there is enough space on the NTFS volume during the GRT process on the Backup Exec Server or Unhide the Temp folder on the Volume.
