VSS Error Event id 8193 - 0x80070539

    Question

  •  

    I keep getting VSS Error with event id 8193 for several weeks now:

    ConvertStringSidToSid
    0x80070539
    Operation: OnIdentify event Gathering Writer Data Context:
    Execution Context: Shadow Copy Optimization Writer Writer Class Id:
    {4dc3bdd4-ab48-4d07-adb0-3bee2926fd7f}
    Writer Name: Shadow Copy Optimization Writer Writer Instance ID:
    {bd32726a-3d40-4c27-9282-2af7d5cff0a5}

    Any ideas?

  • Checking registered writers with "vssadmin list writers" does not list the "Shadow Copy Optimization Writer".

    Is there a way of re-registering this writer with VSS? I guess this would stop the error.

  • I am having the same problem and it is VERY frustrating.  I was told at Dell tech support to reinstall Vista SP 1.  What did you do?  Thanks.

  • Noting much just hoping somebody with the right knowledge is going to give me a light ...

    All public VSS resolutions relate to Server 2003 and hence do not work here.

     

    Also I have reformulated the issue slightly:

     

     

    Vista SP1 - VSSadmin List Writers reveals one writer missing:

    Shadow Copy Optimization Writer is not listed.

     

    Creating a restore point causes VSS Error with event id 8193

    However, restore point creation is succesful.

     

    There must be another way but reinstalling the entire OS and everything else on top from scratch ...

  • This post seemed to solve the issue for me:

    Followed steps in 'KB947242 - A temporary profile is loaded after you log on to a Windows Vista-based system' to resolve issue where customer's profile was deleted from the system (in this case the profile was simply corrupt).

    1.  
      1. Open regedit and locate 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList'
      2. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete any subkey that is named SID.bak.

  • Deleting the registry key resolved my similar issue.
