Specs: Windows Vista Basic, Ram 3GB
Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a computer novice and would appreciate your help.
Couldn't do a backup on my desktop because a shadow copy could not be created due to : Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage or other shadow copy data (0x8004231F).
CPU: (1) Compaq (C:) Space free 208 GB; Total size 289 GB. (2) Factory_Image (D:) Space free 99.0 MB; Total size 8.96 GB
Thank you.

✔ Best Answer
Use Windows back up that is built in.
Back up to an external drive such as an external hard drive or if a desktop add a separate hard drive internally for backing up to.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hi Fingers,

Thank you very much. I did not expect such a fast response.
This is the first time that I went on-line to seek an answer to my problem. Previously I could do a back-up on the DVD RW Drive.
