Windows 7: Unable to use windows backup. VSS error?

13 Dec 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

What about the event logs errors? Is there any lead we have on that?

If you have a system reserved use Disk Management see how much free space you have. If less than 50MB you may have problems here.

My disk management function lists that I have a SYSTEM RESERVED, which is 100mb, and an unnamed partition also recorded as a recovery partition. But I hope to solve the error directly. Again, is there any lead on this warning in the event log:

Volume Shadow Copy Service warning: VSS was denied access to the root of volume \\?\Volume{626d6c76-fa1e-11e0-9ba2-0811961be35c}\. Denying administrators from accessing volume roots can cause many unexpected failures, and will prevent VSS from functioning properly. Check security on the volume, and try the operation again.

Execution Context: System Provider

And this error:

Volume Shadow Copy Service error: An internal inconsistency was detected in trying to contact shadow copy service writers. The Registry Writer failed to respond to a query from VSS. Check to see that the Event Service and Volume Shadow Copy Service are operating properly, and please check the Application event log for any other events.

Any help please? :0
