Ran out of space, how to fix issue

Post by Juchestyle » Jun 17, 2015 2:22 pm

Hey Everyone,

We have a client who clicked on a full backup and ran out of space on the 6TB drive. What is the right way to fix this situation? The client suggested deleting this backup job and all server data associated with it and start over. I have hope there is a better alternative.

Thank you,

Matthew, it is sufficient to remove some older restore points to release space, no need to delete the job and all the backups it has produced. What backups method is being used by this job (forward/reverse) and what files does it currently have in the repository?

On top of that, I would recommend to consider using Veeam ONE (part of Availability Suite) for proactive monitoring and capacity planning for your backup repositories.
