shadow storage

I have been trying to back up my computer and keep getting this message: "Insufficient storage availabe to create either the shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data (0x8004231F)". :confused::confused: Can anyone offer a solution.

Go to Computer Right Click on the drive go to properties and see how full it is.
You will need to either delete or transfer items out onto another drive or discs.

Yes, I have a back up drive I just installed yesterday. But my computer won't back up to it giving the same shadow copy message. My computer's c: has 207 GB free. The d: is 9.71 GB but only has 5.18 MB free.
