Warning: The space for volume snapshots is too small

The requested maximum space allocated for volume snapshots is smaller than the minimum size required for the volume.

How to Fix This Error

Increase the maximum space for volume snapshots to at least 50 GB. If the volume is smaller than 500 GB increase the maximum space for volume snapshots to at least 10% of the total space on the volume.

Another workaround is to delete unneeded files from the volume to create more free space.

If the volume is being used to store Windows System Backup images, set the maximum space to at least 50%. (This is the default setting applied in Windows Image Backup.)

U-Tools recommends that you do not override this warning message. This is because it will cause volume snapshots and image backups to be dropped faster than expected.
