Question

I've been receiving messages that my last backup has failed. When I try to do a backup I get the following message: The backup did not complete successfully. A shadow copy could not be created for the following reason: Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data.
When I look at the recovery drive space it has only 10.1 MB free of 10.0 GB. The C drive has 235 GB free of 10.0 GB. What can I do?
