Steps to take if you are setup for email notifications and you’ve received an Intuit Data Protect Backup Failed email with the message “Out of disk space”.
Why this is happening
To successfully backup your files with Intuit Data Protect, you need to have at least two times the size of your biggest FileSet plus an additional 60MB of free space in C:Documents and SettingsAdministratorLocal SettingsApplication DataIntuitIntuit Data Protect.
For example, if the file or file set you are backing up is 1G, then you would need to have 2G and 60MB of space available.
