I get an error that ntbackup cannot complete.  I am using a Windows SBS 2003.  I am selecting only the system state.   Here is the error:

Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.

Hi,

This error: Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:0x8004231f.

is usually generated from lack of disk space. Can you confirm you have enough space for the volume shadow copy to create the system state backup.

Can you confirm how much disk space is available and do you have any way of freeing up space?
