Win 7 backup to SBS 2011 won't work

I have a windows 7 PC trying to backup to SBS 2011.
It comes up with a no disk space error.  I have disabled disk quota for this user.  The drive keeps reporting that she has 200Gb of space.  I even changed the disk space quota to 215 Gb and it won't work.  Not sure where else to look to fix this issue.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I am not sure what you mean when you say you have "PC trying to backup to SBS 2011".

Are you just trying to copy data? Or use some built-in Windows Backup Option?

If you are copying data, can you do this as admin user?
Can you copy any data at all?

The problem is that it is showing one  1GB left out of 200.  200 is the quota but there is no quota turned on for this user and I increased the quote to 215 just to check.  No go.

I wonder if a policy hasn't updated or similar as that is what it sounds like when it is displaying as 1GB left.

Quick and dirty way to test is just create a new share on the partition. If that works then you know there is something with the current share that is causing the issue.

I even migrated her to a new computer that she got and it still says the same for that so I am guessing its server related. Just wanted to see if I wasn't missing something??

Probably need to try an isolate where the issue is.

Is it the user or the server.

By creating a new share we should be able to find out where the issue is.
