I have just installed Symantec Backup Exec 2010 and I successfully performed a full backup last night. This morning I wanted to test the capability of restoring individual emails in an Exchange system. I deleted an (unimportant) email from my inbox and then started a restore job just for that email. After about 10 minutes of staging, the job failed with this error:
The path on the media server for staging temporary restore data when restoring individual items from tape ran out of disk space. Either clear some disk space, or click Tools/Options/Restore and enter a path that has more disk space.
The link on the Symantec site said to either delete files off of that drive (it's on the default C:\temp) or change to another drive with "ample amount of disk space to stage the restore data."
I have another drive I can use, but my question is, how much is "ample"? The C: drive has 12.8GB free and, apparently, that's not enough. I have another drive with 73.2GB free; that's the most free space I have on any drive. How much will I need?
