Acronis Storage Node service does not have enough privileges to create a file in the directory


As a best practice, please go to Start-Run -> services.msc and change the Acronis Storage Node service account to the administrator one (domain or local);

If setting the account to administrator does not comply with your security policies, go to the directory where the vault database is to be stored and make sure that the Acronis Storage Node account has Full Control permissions to the folder.
