  • Hi Abdul,

    Would you mind please writing the error out in plain text in the interest of security? You will probably get a lot more responses if PPL don't have to visit a shared drive to retrieve a file.

  • Hello again Abdul,

    Here are some things you can try:

    1. In the services MSC, check that the volume shadow copy service is started.

    2. Run SFC /Scannow or DISM Restore Health to make sure OS is good

    3. Disable any AV security software temporarily and test to eliminate conflict

    4. Try using a different destination backup media to rule out faulty media

    5. Check you have enough disk space on the source drive for the VSS

    6. Use VSSAdmin to increase the Shadow Copy Storage Space
