  • Hi,

    May I ask do you use windows server backup feature or 3rd party backup software?

    If it is the 3rd backup tool. Could you please use windows server backup utility to do a check?

    Please also run the commands below:

    net stop vss

    net start vss

    In addition, please check the event viewer, is there any other error message?

    Best Regards,

    Mary
