ISSUE

What options do I have if there is no more space on the C: drive.

RESOLUTION

Below is an example of what Microsoft instructs with regards to moving the snapshot storage location.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc788051(v=ws.11).aspx

In order to configure the shadow copy storage location for each volume, the following steps can be taken:

  1.  Open your command prompt in Administrator Mode.
  2. The command you need to run is in this format:
vssadmin add shadowstorage /for= /on= /maxsize= ​

For Example: If the VSS shadow copies of the C: drive will be stored on the D: drive and allowed to use up to 30% of the free disk space on D:, the command would look like:
vssadmin add shadowstorage /for=c: /on=d: /maxsize=30%

If the command was performed successfully, the following message will be shown: Successfully added the shadow copy storage association
