    Windows 2012 Backup error 0x8004231F

    I recently had a server that had Windows Backup failing with the error (0x8004231F) “There is not enough disk space to create the volume shadow copy on the storage location” All the hard drives appeared to have plenty of space and the backup drives were new and also had plenty of space.
