Error "Insufficient disk space for restore of backup file" Restoring a Backup
Published: 17 Jul 2014 Last Modified Date: 02 May 2016
When restoring a Tableau Server backup to a non-default location, the following error might occur:
Error: Insufficient disk space for restore of backup file.
If the Current free space message matches the free space available on the c:\ drive instead of the drive where Tableau Server is installed, perform a clean reinstall of Tableau Server as outlined in the article Moving Tableau Server to a Different Drive.
Tableau Server has data on both the c:\ drive and the drive where Tableau Server is installed. To restore the backup on the drive where Tableau Server is installed, no Tableau Server data should exist on the c:\ drive.
