2008 SBS backup error "A Volume Shadow Copy Service operation failed. Unknown error (0x800423f4)"

    Question

  • Hello,

    I'm getting the following error on my 2008 SBS when doing backups.

    "A Volume Shadow Copy Service operation failed. Unknown error (0x800423f4)"

    I have disabled the Shadow copy service and stopped SQL but am still getting this error.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Shadow copy service should not be disabled. since that is required for running backup application. please enable and retry.

    in the meanwhile - i will try to find out whether your question about SBS backup can be better answered in another fourm?
