This error may occur because there are too many Windows language packages installed on your computer.

This is because the backup process affects the system writer who reports files in important applications that are installed on the computer. If a large number of language packages are installed, the metadata file reported by this author becomes huge and no longer corresponds to the 100 MB volume. This causes the backup to fail because there is not enough space to make the shadow copy. This is not something you can check, because this metadata file is created during backup and deleted at the end.

Uninstall unused language packs.

To solve the problem, uninstall all unused language packages that are currently installed on your computer. You can do this by clicking on Start, typing Lpksetup.exe in the search box, then clicking on Lpksetup.exe in the list of programs. Once the Language Pack installer has started, click Uninstall Display Languages. Uninstall the languages you are not using, then restart your computer and restart the backup.
