    "someove from Microsoft" neither lives here nor has the job to check
    here.

    This is a group where regular folks help other regular folks.

    see contact addresses for Laura B and Mike Abrams. It seems they may indeed
    be from Microsoft. Anyway it seems that with all the good will in the world,
    the problem is still unresolved...bun

    With all the good will in the world, a whole lot of problems are still
    unresolved. Not only with computers.

    That's life.

    Hi Christine. I notice that these posts were some time ago, and I am
    still getting this error with SP1. If you run the File Backup enough
    times it will eventually complete, but randomly errors out with the
    message below. Did anything ever turn up about this?

    "The last file backup did not complete succesfully. Details: "There is
    not enough space on your Windows disk to prepare for backing up your
    files. At least 400MB of free space is required to continue.
    (0x81000014)"

    Christine help, I am having this file back-up error as well, 6/20/08 was my
    last successful file back-up (auto back-up is set to weekly). I am running
    Vista Ultimate 32bit and my windows route drive is 362 gigs with 270 gigs
    free space and I am saving the back-ups to a 500 gig drive with a 385 gig
    partition set as my j: drive with 220 gigs freespace, all drives are
    formatted to NTFS. 400MB I've got that to spare? Like others, I also have
    deleted my previous file back-ups and my previous complete system retore
    back-up in an effort to free-up enough drive space with no sucess. My machine
    did however perform the complete system back-up on 7/19/08. What gives??????
    Virus, sp1 bug, screensaver settings, sleep mode interference, can it have a
    cold???????

    My issue was the same as in the very 1st message posted in this thread.

    Even after all the posts I never could find a definitive answer to the
    original problem.

    See below:
    (Backup error about space on Windows disk (0x81000014)
    I have Windows Vista Home Premium, and have been using the Backup tools
    that
    come with Vista. I've been performing backups of my C drive to an
    external
    harddrive (M).

    For the most part the backup have been working, and I have tested
    recovering
    files. However today I got an error that I cannot figure out:

    The last file backup did not complete succesfully. Details:
    "There is not enough space on your Windows disk to prepare for backing
    up
    your files. At least 400MB of free space is required to continue.
    (0x81000014)"

    I have over 183GB for free space on C. And over 297GB of free space on
    M.
    I'm not sure where it can't find 400MB of space in all these free GBs.
    Any
    suggestions?)
