At the very minimum you need at least 300 MB or so, for a single shadow copy, for multiple shadow copies, the space can increase more depending on the I/O usage. You can always run the command VSSADMIN LIST SHADOWSTORAGE to see how much space is used for the existing shadow copies. Only Fixed Drives Only fixed drives are supported. You cannot enable Shadow Copy on removable,…
