Message "Disk Recovery is running low on free space"

Veeam Logoby tfelice » Fri Dec 12, 2014 6:27 pm

What is the significance of the message "Disk Recovery is running low on free space" in the status of a completed job in the UI? I ran an initial backup on Windows 7 workstation which has a single local drive, which is an SSD with 131 GB free of 229 GB. The backup was written to a network share, which is a Samba server using an iSCSI SAN back end. The backup location has several terabytes of free space. The backup appears to have completed normally.

Hi Tony,
This warning indicates that you have a system (hidden) partition Disk Recovery which might be a factory volume and it is filled. There is nothing to worry about, as it will be backed up too.

Dima, it's a bug - we should not be reporting this warning for system partitions.

Just FYI, 1.0.0.1954 still reports this warning.

Hello Dima, I've found this same problem and search lead me to this post. My factory recovery volume (labled "RECOVERY") is 16GB and only 1.84GB is free. This is a bug becasue all of my backups complete with a "Warning"

Hello Dima,

I upgraded to 1.1.0.110 and I still see that all backups report as ending in a "Warning" on the B&R server job status window. Was this supposed to be fixed in the latest release? We really should be able to backup our small recovery partitions without having to have the backup report a "warning".

jayadams,
Need to know the exact size of the partitions in the question and the original error wording from the backup log.

I currently have a case open about this (00996090). I was told the following. Neither of these worked and I am still waiting to hear back on what else can be done to resolve this. I LIKE ME EMAILS GREEN!! :-)

"I`d like you to update your Veaam EndPoint Backup version. You can download it here: http://www.veeam.com/endpoint-backup-free.html
Or at first you can remove the letter of HP_Tools disk via disk management and try the backup job once again"

If you mean you got the name (HP_RECOVERY) from the CASE, The size is 9.61 GB, which was also included in the picture I sent in the email for the case.

If you are looking at logs that were uploaded for my case, please ignore those as I had to give the user back their PC and therefore I used the agent on my PC just to get the case open. I did not realize it would also upload logs.

Since logs and the screenshots do not contain any info can you clarify the free/used space metrics of this volume? Thanks.

Thanks Mike.

Are you sure, it does not have a mount point? Can you double-check that by opening the CMD and running the mountvol /l ?
