Production drive 'D:\' is getting low on free space

Post by Ultra_Cool » Sep 17, 2015 6:40 am

Hello Everyone,

We are getting this message every day but only on one server. On our repository we have 600 GB free and on this VM we have 29 GB free. I don't know what is going on?

Error message is: Production drive 'D:\' is getting low on free space (9,6 GB left), and may run out of free disk space completely due to open snapshots and it is allways 9,6 GB

This message refers to the disk where backed up VMs reside. Have you checked the free space available there? Looks like it is not enough to hold the snapshots of all the VMs in the job during the backup.

Hi Foggy,

We have 600 GB free and we are not backing up all VMs at the same time so it is strange that we receive this message.

Do you mean 600GB on the production datastore, where VM source disks reside (you've called it repository in your previous post, hence my question)? How many VMs are backed up there, what kind of VMs, and what is the total data size? What is the job duration time?
