I am trying to do a backup the Backup using the Backup and Restore feature in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration. I just want to backup only the farm configuration settings only.
so I followed the GUI
Open CA Backup and Restore, checked the Farm checkbox, click Next
I chose the following:
Backup Type : Full
Data to backup: Back up only configuration settings
Backup File location : use an UNC shared location
at this point, I see the Estimated disk space required is: 1.2 GB
the server hard disk available space is 30 GB
but when i click the Start Backup, i got an error in RED saying
"There is not enough disk space. Free additional space on your hard disk and then try again. Approximate amount of space needed is 40 GB. Amount of space free on disk: 30 GB."
Why is this happened? and the estimated disk spaced required still showed at 1.2GB
If anyone had experience this problem and have a solution, please advice
