Dear Sir,

I have enabled the Shadow Copy of d: drive and the storage area is e: drive.

I would like to know that, If the e: drive is full, will it overwrite the previous version of the shadow copy.

    You set the amount of space that the shadow copies will consume during the initial setup of the shadow copy (you can look again at the settings to see what this is set to).

    Once that amount is reached it will start overwriting the oldest copy.
