Possible save shadowstorage on a Different drive?

Hello,

I am running windows 7 on a 100GB SSD(C:), and want to leave as much free space as possible.

I have a 1TB storage/backup drive(S:).

I would like to know if it is possible to store the system restore data for my C: drive on my S: drive.

I have tried to do vssadmin resize shadowstorage /For=C: /On=S: /Maxsize=10GB but it says the specified volume shadow copy storage was not found.

It works if i do for=c on=c or for=s on=s. but not for=c on=s.


is this possible to achieve?

    look in MY COMPUTER for the storage devices, it should say there .back up to that storage device [1tb storage]what your doing is backup on the c drive.options for backup complete to another storage is already available with your backup and restore program in windows 7
