My backup starts, adds files, makes shadow copy and then shuts down. The following is the last few lines of the log file.

It says not enough room to write archive. The destination drive is a 1.5TB external drive on the network (wireless), with .3TB free space. The laptop has 389MB free space. I have tested the network connection and it always comes back good.
Any suggestions on what seems to be the problem?

What is the total size of the source files?

Is the destination drive formatted as FAT32 or as NTFS?
