This article applies to:

  • OS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10
  • Product edition: inSync Cloud

Problem description

Error 112 means there is not enough space on disk. Looks like the C:\ drive does not have enough disk space and needs to free up some space for any uninterrupted operation to be completed by the inSync Agent. 

It is observed that system app settings backup fails or does not complete due to low disk space on the C:\ drive and existence of temporary profile in the Windows registry of the client machine.

inSync basically uses the Windows built in USMT for System, App Settings backup or migration. The built in USMT fails to start the migration process. 


  1. Increase the disk space on C:\ drive. inSync requires minimum of 8GB of free space on the C:\ drive for any operation to succeed. 
  2. Shutdown the machine, wait for a few minutes, and then boot the machine again to get rid of the temp profile.
  3. Try the System Settings backup again from inSync. 
  4. If restarting the machine did not resolve the issue. Perform the following steps to delete the temporary profile from the windows machine.
    1. Take a backup of the registry. 
    2. Click Start > click the Search icon > enter regedit in the Search box and then press ENTER. 
    3. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, enter your password and click Continue.
    4. If you are not prompted for administrator credentials, simply click Continue. 
    5. Locate the following registry subkey "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
    6. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak
    7. SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem. The SID.bak subkey must contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem. 
    8. Exit Registry Editor. 
    9. Log out  and log on to the system again. 
    10. Run a backup.

 If the backup fails again, please contact Druva Support for further troubleshooting.
