Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I was trying to create backups to my computer, but I got an error as below –

Error code: 0x81000019.

The error indicates insufficient space, but I just bought my computer not longer than two months. There is sufficient space. What am I supposed to do?

How To Solve Backup Error 0x81000019


There is a possibility of this error if there are many language packs installed which make the metadata file larger and it won’t fit in 100MB space. To solve this issue, you need to uninstall all unnecessary language packs.

Click Start. Search Lpksetup.exe and click on it. Click uninstall display languages. Uninstall all the languages which are not needed. Restart your computer and start backing up your data again.

Another reason could be the System Reserved partition. Shadow copies will not work if System Reserved partition is less than 40% of the drive. To solve this, you need to increase the space of partition.

Click Start. Search diskmgmt.msc and hit enter. Search for System Reserved partition and check if it has 70 MB or more than 70MB space by clicking on properties. If it is less than 70MB you need to resize the partition. EaseUS partition management software can help you resize the partition easily.

How To Solve Backup Error 0x81000019


Error code “0x81000019” throws off the message “A shadow copy could not be created. Please check “VSS” and “SPP” application event logs for more information”. There is a user who was able to fix this problem by doing this. First, run Disk Cleanup on every drive you have excluding the optical drive, of course. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, “System Tools” then “Disk Cleanup”.

In the Disk Cleanup dialog, you can check everything to clean except “Windows ESD installation files”, if you have this, because this one is important on Windows 10. Repeat this on the next drive. You can also just use CCleaner to do the cleanup on your computer. Download the free version. After the cleanup, click “Start” then right-click “Computer” and select “Properties”.

On the next screen, select “System protection” on the left pane. Next, in “System Properties” window, in “System Protection” tab, under “Protection Settings” section, select drive C then click “Configure”. On the next screen, under “Disk Space Usage” section, click “Delete” to delete all restore points. When it is finished, click “OK” then select the next drive and do the same.

Once all restore points are deleted on all drives, try backing up again.
