  1. When I try to backup a 1.36 terabyte raid to a disk image, and I’m using a 2.73 terabyte disk to back off the image too. Even though the backup says there’s enough room to back up the image when I initialize the operation it comes back with an error saying there isn’t enough room to copy the volume shadow copy on the storage location. Is there anyway around this? Do I need the volume shadow copy for the image creating process ?
