Volume Shadow Copy Stops without warning - preventing auto backup - Why does it keep stopping RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some time I had problems with backing up my system on Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1, eventually I worked it out that it was a result of Volume Shadow Copy not being Started.  I set it to start automatically, which "sometimes" it does, but other times it doesn't.  So I periodically check, especially a day or so before Auto Backup is due.  I quite often have to Start or Restart VSC.  however It quite often stops for no apparent reason.  Can anyone tell me why - I have spoken to MS Techs and cant get a straight answer from  them.  It doesn't shut down all the time but "most of the time"

  • Hi,

    Are you using the Windows 7 bulit-in backup?

    Take a look at Event Viewer logs and check if there are some entries related to VSS service.
