    Hi All,
    I've been trying to resolve a sticky issue. We are getting this issue on two
    of our servers;
    Description: The shadow copies of volume E: were deleted because the shadow
    copy storage could not grow in time. Consider reducing the IO load on the
    system or choose a shadow copy storage volume that is not being shadow copied.

    We are looking at shadow copies on three partitions on one disk. C:, D:, and
    E: The shadow copies are scheduled 15 minutes apart 7:15, :30 and :45 am.
    C:'s limit is set to 3127MB and it uses 3000MB, D: is set to 10435MB and it
    uses 10001MB, E: is set to 10435MB and it uses 3000MB. The E: drive is the
    one reporting the error. The paging file is 2046-4092MB and on E: the
    recommended size is 6135MB.

    We've implemented, moved the shadow
    copies, waved a dead chicken over the server, nothing seems to get rid of
    this. It doesn't appear to be a space issue as there is plenty of space on
    all the drives.

    Anyone hav any ideas?
