No space left on device


During backups you see an error that reads:
No space left on device 


There are couple of reasons you could see this error:
  • You are running out of disk space
  • You are using a disk over a channel (such as iSCSI) that is no longer available or is running into problems.

Syncrify Server

There are 3 possible locations where you could run out of disk space:
  1. Installation folder - this is where logs and reports are stored

  2. Data Folder
  3. Temp Folder - temporary area used for computing deltas
