Windows 7 backup error code 0x81000019 (Backup Failure)

    Question

  • Running "backup" failed with error code 0x81000019.

    After days of trouble shooting, I narrowed the problem to "com+ event system" service. It showed "started", I restarted it and backup worked. If I restart computer, I have to restart the service again for backup to work.

    A "TEMPORARY" solution is a desktop batch file that contains the following lines:    net stop /Y "COM+ Event system"                                                                      net start "COM+ Event System"  exit                                                                                                                                 
    (Run this batch file before doing a backup.)                                                          

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). I did a clean install which includes the system partition. No other problems, just this one.

  • Hi BobK1110,

     

    Thanks for the post!

     

    What’s your error message when you got the error code 0x8100019? Please check this thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itprogeneral/thread/fce6950d-c06d-4dd0-a850-67022db4fe04

     

    Do you have the same error message?

     

    If so, this is a known issue, as a workaround, you can increase the system reserved partition size to 500MB.

     

    Meanwhile, thanks for sharing your solution on this issue, it could be beneficial for other community members.

  • Yes, I receive the same error message.

     "A shadow copy could not be created. Please check the 'VSS' and 'SPP' application event logs for more information. Details: Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data. "

    I still hope for a permanent solution, rather then workarounds.

    Thanks for the quick responce.

  • Simply click your Start Button:

    Right click Computer
    then 
    Right Click Manager
    then 
    Click Services & Applications
    then 
    Click Services
    then
    Go down the list till you find
    COM+Event System
    and 
    Click restart

    The re-start of "com+event system" service worked.  my win 7 backup is running.  That is all that is needed to get the backup working.  Forget all that other stuff.
