vssadmin shadowstorage

I ran into an issues today with one of our clients backup not running properly.  After checking the log – “There is not enough space on the volume where the snapshot storage is located.”  This log is a bit misleading.  I’ve tried to clean up the hard disk a bit using space mongo.  Re run the backup and it failed again.  After some digging, I ended up running a command – vssadmin list shadowstorage – 
I get the results Maximum shadow copy storage space: 100%. 
Did some more digging and microsoft recommend this command –
vssadmin resize shadowstorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=20%
