  • Hi Ravikiran M,

    Please also run vssadmin list wirters to do a check, any other error?

    Microsoft does not support VSS on volumes larger than 64 TB

    Since 3rd party backup software will also call vss, , please check if you doesn't meet the requirements below

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2967756/usability-limit-for-volume-shadow-copy-service-vss-in-windows

    If it still no clue, please also  temporarily 3rd party backup software, use build-in windows server backup feature to do a check. Any other error message in the event viewer for windows server backup feature ?

    Best Regards,

    Mary
