Backups of the system reserved partition on Windows 7 client machines are failing with 'VSS_E_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE'.
All other volumes are backing up successfully.
E4F3000E error: Snapshot failure while using Volume Shadow Copy Service. Please check application event log for VSS errors. Error code: VSS_E_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE (-2147212513). 0xE4F3000E (Symantec System Recovery)
1. Assign a drive letter to the System Reserved partition in Disk Management.
2. Run command prompt as administrator and run the following command:
FSUTIL USN DELETEJOURNAL /N /D X:
(where X is the letter you assigned to the System Reserved partition above)
3. Remove drive letter from System Reserved partition and run backup.
NOTE: Another possible cause is that the volume does not have enough free space to create a VSS snapshot. As per Microsoft, if the volume is less than 500MB in size, VSS requires 32MB of free space. If the volume is 500MB or greater, VSS requires 320MB of free space.
