    I have a 223gb and a 931gb drive that I am trying to back up to a 4gb external drive formatted in GPT.

    The back up keeps failing and giving me the error:

    Paragon Back up 14 Free Ver

    VSS Error not enough disk space. This is a win 7 ultimate box and a blank 4tb drive.

    Please advise.

    Thanks!

    You can either increase the free space in the drives and try again, or build a boot USB Flash Drive and back up from it.

    Thanks! How would would I go about doing this "increase the free space in the drives" and is this the 223gb and a 931gb that I am increasing the size of?

    Ok follow all the instructions there to set things to Hot Processing. Still the same error "VSS Error not enough disk space."
    Anyone else have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    You're trying to back up all the disks at once? To the PBF or to PVHD format?

    I have been using Paragon Back up for many years now....The only thing that has changed is this new 4TB external drive that

    IMHO, the drive capacity is not the only change from the previous years. Now it has the GPT and possibly other cluster size.
