See below message I am receiving on my daily backup using Symantec Backup Exec.  Any ideas what this means and how I resolve?

AOFO: Initialization failure on: "\\D721085J\C:". Advanced Open File Option used: Symantec Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP).
Snapshot provider error (0xE000851C): Cache files required for the VERITAS Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP) snapshot could not be created. Check that there is at least 50 MB of free disk space, and review the settings for the snapshot that are reported in the job log.
Check the Windows Event Viewer for details.

Thanks for the comments to come.

hi,

It seems that you are low on disk space on the server and if you aren't low try restarting your Backup Exec services.

Or you are low on disk space on whatever volume  is used for storage or it can not be accessed.

I hope this helps !
