Error: Snapshots were found, but they were outside of your allowed context

    General discussion

  • I performed backup of a volume storing a database on my server using Windows Server Backup (WSB).

    Now I have some old shadows that I would like to remove.

    To do that, I use the vssadmin command with ShadowID that I'd like to remove:

    vssadmin delete shadows /Shadow={9bae879d-979e-4ec0-b252-720de085d2bf}

    However, I get the response

    Error: Snapshots were found, but they were outside of your allowed context.  Try
     removing them with the backup application which created them.

    Well, the application that created these shadows was WSB, and WSB GUI does not have command to delete old shadows.

    How can I delete these shadows?

    TIA

    Les
