Windows Server 2003 SBS: Restore Backup Error

I have had a rough week....First a drive failed in my server array....then I hit a deer. Now to my current problem. I have replaced the defective drive, and reconfigured the array including duplicating it's partitions to the same state as they were before the failure. I reinstalled the base OS and restarted the server in Directory Services Restore Mode. Once reboot was complete I followed the technet article "Restore Windows Small Business Server" at the following location http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708047%28WS.10%29.aspx 

The restoration commenced through drive C:, but when started to restore the D: partition it got about 1GB of data restored then gave the following error:

"The Backup Utility cannot restore "filename": There is not enough space on the disk. Delete one or more files to increase disk space, and then try again." Attached is a copy of the backup report, the following is an excerpt from that report:

Insufficient disk space. Verify that you have full access to the working folder and there is disk space available.
Error restoring the file 071811 06.xls

The partition to which it is attempting to restore the "D:data" files to is of equal or greater size than the data set, and in any case contains over 46GB of available space at the time of this error.

Help me please I'm fading fast!

BTW for anyone pondering this question: Why didn't I just pull the effected drive and rebuild the data using the backup drive......the backup drive was corrupt and UN-bootable!

is your av running on server while you doing this restore?
try to disable this or atleast disable on access service and try restoring it.

did you run a chkdsk on that drive before restoring?

have you looked at this question?

Accepted solution was:

"Check the quotas on the disk - if the file ownership of the restored files belongs to a user exceeding their quota, that would make sense."

when I think about it: 1GB is the default quota when using SBS

@softwaresoft--No AV running at this time, this is a clean install of the OS only to enable the use of the Backup/Restore utility as per the above listed technet article.

@CSorg--Yes chkdsk was run at the CL on both the C: and D: partitions. Both volumes are NTFS format and contained no errors. Also the HP Array Configuration Utility Diagnostic reports are clean.

@CSorg--Yes good point however it didn't have any trouble writing to the C: drive. I'll check on that though.

@CSorg---You might be onto something there...Quota management was active with a 1GB limit. I'll remove Quota limits and retry.

Once Quota Mgmt was disabled the restoration continued without stopping. So that problem was resolved. Unfortunately the restoration didn't work. Upon restart......blue screen....PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

***STOP 0x0000006B (0x0000007A,0xC0000008,0x00000000,0x00000000)

Alas, I am at a loss........

did you do a full restore? could you start in Safe Mode?

CSorg,

Yes, I have performed a complete restore twice, from two different backups. Each time when the computer is restarted after the restoration to apply the changes, the blue screen appears and I can't boot via normal or safe modes.

I did in my comment above when I awarded you the points. But here it is again.

PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

***STOP 0x0000006B (0x0000007A,0xC0000008,0x00000000,0x00000000)

Thanks for your continued interest,

sorry, forgot to scroll up :-)

looks like the corruption is on that backup as well ; do you have any previous backups? would it be an option to do a clean install and only restore the D-partition?

your error could be a problem in the pagefile as well, try removing that.
