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.

How to fix

You can run out of disk space on both client and/or server side.

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. Repository path where user's files are stored

  • Look for the parameter on the following page. It contains the path where TEMP folder is located.
  • Click here to change the location of the TEMP folder in Syncrify Server.

Syncrify Client

There are 3 possible locations on the client as well:
  1. Installation folder
  2. Data Folder
  3. Temp Folder - temporary area used for computing deltas

Locating the TEMP folder

The actual value for this configuration is saved in ClientConfig.xml file, which is found in the Data Folder.
