Shadowstorage Assignment Of Contract

You may manage shadowstorage manually via the Windows command prompt using the vssadmin commands, as shown in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754968.aspx.

Below are examples of how to add or resize shadowstorage manually.

How to Add Shadowstorage Space if None Exists

To add shadowstorage space if none exists, please follow these steps:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt using the run as administrator option.
  2. Enter the command: vssadmin add shadowstorage /for=X: /on=X: /maxsize=10%.
    1. You may substitute any drive letter for X: in the above command. This includes allotting space for one drive on another.
      1. For example, if you entered vssadmin add shadowstorage /for=C: /on=D: /maxsize=10%, then any snapshots for the C: drive would be created on the D: drive. This allows you to allot space for snapshots for any drive, even if a drive does not have enough free space to hold them.
    2. You may also substitute other values for the /maxsize value. Examples include 20%, 10GB, 5000MB, and so on.
    3. The vssadmin add shadowstorage command is described in full on Microsoft's website at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc788051.aspx.

How to Resize Existing Shadowstorage Space

Please be cautious if you change the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space. If you lower the amount of space available, Windows will automatically remove any excess snapshots, starting with the oldest. This is most common when the shadowstorage space is changed from UNBOUNDED to some smaller value, but may occur any time the shadowstorage space is reduced.

CSSB itself does not need old snapshots for any reason. Your backups on disk and/or cloud are safe. However, this may not be true for other applications, especially other backup applications. Please consult your system administrator before resizing your shadowstorage.

To resize existing shadowstorage space, please follow these steps:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt using the run as administrator option.
  2. Enter the command: vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=X: /on=X: /maxsize=10%.
    1. You may substitute any drive letter for X: in the above command. This includes allotting space for one drive on another.
      1. For example, if you entered vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=C: /on=D: /maxsize=10%, then any snapshots for the C: drive would be created on the D: drive. This allows you to allot space for snapshots for any drive,, even if a drive does not have enough free space to hold them.
    2. You may also substitute other values for the /maxsize value. Examples include 20%, 10GB, 5000MB, and so on.
    3. The vssadmin resize shadowstorage command is described in full on Microsoft's website at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc788050.aspx.

How to Verify the Amount of Shadowstorage Space Currently in Use

To verify the amount of shadowstorage space currently in use, please follow these steps:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt using the run as administrator option.
  2. Enter the command: vssadmin list shadowstorage.
  3. The command will return information on the used, allocated, and maximum shadowstorage space allowed for snapshots.
    1. We are concerned with the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space value.
  4. Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space must be equal to or be greater than 10% of the drive's size.
    1. If a drive is not listed, then there is no space allotted for snapshots at all. You must add space for the snapshots.
    2. If the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space for a drive is lower than 10%, please resize the value to 10%.
    3. If the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space is equal to or higher than 10%, and you have received any of the common errors above, please resize the value to 20%.
    4. If the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space is set to UNBOUNDED, you should consider resizing the value to 10% or 20%.
      1. When UNBOUNDED, Windows will never automatically delete old snapshots. These snapshots can fill up the entire drive.

(1) A party may perform his duty through a delegate unless otherwise agreed or unless the other party has a substantial interest in having his original promisor perform or control the acts required by the contract. No delegation of performance relieves the party delegating of any duty to perform or any liability for breach.

(2) Unless otherwise agreed all rights of either seller or buyer can be assigned except where the assignment would materially change the duty of the other party, or increase materially the burden or risk imposed on him by his contract, or impair materially his chance of obtaining return performance. A right to damages for breach of the whole contract or a right arising out of the assignor's due performance of his entire obligation can be assigned despite agreementotherwise.

(3)Unless the circumstances indicate the contrary a prohibition of assignment of "the contract" is to be construed as barring only the delegation to the assignee of the assignor's performance.

(4) An assignment of "the contract" or of "all my rights under the contract" or an assignment in similar general terms is an assignment of rights and unless the language or the circumstances (as in an assignment for security) indicate the contrary, it is a delegation of performance of the duties of the assignor and its acceptance by the assignee constitutes a promise by him to perform those duties. This promise is enforceable by either the assignor or the other party to the original contract.

(5) The other party may treat any assignment which delegates performance as creating reasonable grounds for insecurity and may without prejudice to his rights against the assignor demand assurances from the assignee (Section 2-609).
