Upgrade your storage tier so that the backups can function normally.


The Server Storage Capacity Reached error is logged in the inSyncClient.log when the storage allocated  to your Account/Company is full.

The storage status displayed on the inSync Management Console indicates whether it has exceeded the capacity. For example, the above image indicates the allocated capacity 150 GB as been exceed by 8 GB, which can cause the Server Storage Capacity Reached error. 

 Druva support sends regular reminders/alerts to inSync Administrators  when the storage limit has exceeded or is about to exceed.
