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%

Disk Clean Up Tools

Do you have a server or pc that is not working due to disk storage full or almost full? If you are an IT administrator or even a desktop support, you probably have ran into these issues. Sometimes, it’s legit that a person hard drive is full do to legit space usage, but more often, there are other issues, such as log file, temp files, windows updates, or backup logs files taking up space. When you run into these issues, what do you do? Do you try to manually figure out what is using up all the space or do you use a 3rd party software? I run into these issues a lot. For me I use a 3rd party software call spacemongo. It saves me lots of time, when I have a disk clean up job to do.
