    Hi,

    need help with my TV Server. It worked fine until last week. Now TimeShift doesn't work but Recordings do.
    There's a line on log that says "Not Enough Space for timeshift" but there is more than plenty...
    And I can't think anything that is changed in between as it is dedicated tv-server on my garage...



    There are two shares on server TV and TIMESHIFT and they are on different physical disks. Access rights checked ok.


    thnx.

    Hi there

    Check your timeshifting settings in TV Server configuration. What does it say about the minimum drive space required, and do you have that amount of space available?

    Hi,

    Minimum required is about 7gb AND i have more than 60gb free on that drive. AND i have tried copying files on drive with success.

    Weird thing is that nothing has changed on configuration. Other that Windows updates.

    Cannot even start manual timeshift on server tv configuration...

    Hi,

    Are you sure you've had this working?

    I'm pretty sure you can't timeshift to a remote drive for the simple reason that the free disk space can't be queried. AFAIK recordings don't perform this check so probably work ok.
