  • Sharepoint Agent and Disk space usage

    Dear all

    I am running CV V11 SP12.

    I have installed the sharepoint agent on a sharepoint cluster.
    After the configuration I was starting a backup job.

    A few hours later had the sharepoint server no more disk space available.
    Seems that the agent uses the C:\ drive as a temporary location before backing the data up.

    The data inside the HDS folder was around 100GB.

    So how much space needs the Sharpoint Agent usually?
    Our server normally have around 100GB C:\ drive and we do not have growing data on the C:\ drive.

    Can I change this behaviour somehow?

    Cheers c0x10

    Hi c0x10.


    It might be the JobResults folder filling up... You should be able to change the location of this folder on the Job Configuration pane seen in the Advanced client properties.

    According to you need the size equal to the amount of data being backed up (and restored).

    As Rubeck mentioned its the job results directory which is the temporary staging area for backup and post backup the space used is cleared.


    Ensure the space available for Job results is twice the size of the biggest web, and Job results is supported on network location.
