I am trying to evaluate SQL Backup v5. I tried to setup log shipping for a database(60 GB). I find that the backup completes successfully in the shared folder, however the restore fails. Below is the message that I get:

    Thank you for your post into the forum.

    Your SEED Restore job of the Log Shipping set up is failing as there is insufficient disk space on the SQL Server you are restoring too, for the server to create the database, hence why it is creating this error:

    SQL error 3257: SQL error 3257: There is insufficient free space on disk volume 'C:\' to create the database. The database requires 62506991616 additional free bytes, while only 10994490368 bytes are available.


    If you wish to set up log shipping to this server, you must choose another disk volume with sufficient disk space or add another disk volume to the server in excess of 63GB or use another server with sufficient disk space.

    Many Thanks
    Eddie
