What backup tool are you using? windows built-in backup, or a 3rd party tool? what are you backing up to? Are your file-systems 100% healthy? Have you checked the eventlogs?

If you are using Windows Built-in backup, and you are backing up to external disks, you must make sure they are 512 sector disks. The built-in tool won't work with 4k sector disks. Modern disks are practically all 4k disks...

I am using Windows Built-in bakckup through network, I've tried on hard disk which has 7K, yet it still failed. I don't know how to fix it now.

My even log (The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because the shadow copy storage failed to grow.) is there any solution to fix it?

You need 512 sector disks when backing up using Windows built-in backup. If you want to use modern 4k disks you either need a 3rd party backup program, or a newer server OS (Windows Server 2012 or later).

If shadow copies have a problem, this could be because of file-system corruption, so run chkdsk /f /r on your server's internal drive-letters. Before doing that check your RAID status and make sure all of the disks in the array are OK. If not, first replace any bad disks and wait for the arrays to rebuild.

it was "The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because the shadow copy storage failed to grow."

I am never sure why people post questions that do not have all the information required to diagnose the problem.

After being prompted for the error message, Rindi supplied the probably answer.
