SCCM backup fails


SMSbackup.log says


Error: SQL Backup failed for component SCCM_HAM SMS_SITE_BACKUP 9/22/2020 7:11:09 PM 7252 (0x1C54)
ERROR: Failed to backup SQL component SCCM_HAM. Error = Asynchronous QueryStatus for DoSnapshotSet failed or did not finish properly. Error description = . Error code = 0x80042302 SMS_SITE_BACKUP 9/22/2020 7:11:09 PM 7252 (0x1C54)

This is what it says in event viewer

 Possible Cause: The Volume Shadow Copy Service may not have sufficient disk space to create the shadow copy of the site backup snapshot information. Check the storage associations for the drives containing Configuration Manager data and ensure that they are configured to use a volume with free space equivalent to at least 50% of the size of the Configuration Manager data.  The backup destination should not be on the source volume, and the storage association should refer to a different volume than the source volume.
