A few months back I started to find that my backups using Mirror Folder
were not working using the ntfs change journals. Don't know if this is related to problem this morning though.
I have just tried to back up some files/folders with another application, Macrium Reflect
which is now throwing me an error about not being able to create a volume snapshot with error code 0x8004230f.
I have checked the event log and found errors with VSS going back to 02/11/2010. Mainly writer errors until this morning.
This morning I got a different error having reformatted the external drive I was backing up too last night. A catastrophic failure error. See attached vss.txt from windows event log.
I have run 'vssadmin list writers' from command prompt which shows no errors.
I have run chkdsk /f on the reformatted drive which shows ok.
Am continuing to investigate but can anyone give me any ideas as to what I should try first?
