  • ERROR - A Volume Shadow Copy Service operation error has
    occurred: (0x800423f4)
    The writer experienced a non-transient error.  If the backup process is retried,
    the error is likely to reoccur.

    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine IVssAsrWriterBackup::GetAsrMetadata.  hr = 0x80070032, The request is not supported.

    Should i post this somewhere else?

    I have restored my c drive from a backup created before the problem started and tried to run backup again but it failed with the same vss error

    A clean install fixed the problem but then there were windows updates that re introduced the error so I have reverted to a backup of the machine after the clean install and before the windows updates and I have opted to pause update for 7 days and posted in the Feedback Hub about this issue
