  • Does anyone know what this error really means ?

    Event 3

    Filter Manager failed to attach to volume '\Device\HarddiskVolume125'.  This volume will be unavailable for filtering until a reboot.  The final status was 0xC03A001C.

    thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Did you run windows backup tools? If yes.

    When you run backup, it will create VSS snapshots. To the OS, these snapshots are local volumes. And these "volumes" are temporarily mounted at that time. Thus, Filter Manager at that time try to attach the filter driver registered to the new "volume" which failed. As these are only snapshot, not real volumes, you can safely ignore these Filter Manager events if they occur at the time a Backup runs. It won't hurt any operations.
