  • Hi,

    Please open an administrative command prompt and run the following commands.

    C:\>Diskshadow.exe /l writers.txt

    Then type: List writers
    Then type: exit

    Open the writers.txt file and search for: SqlServerWriter

    See if all the databases are enumerated.

    Example output:
