Windows 7: BSOD while doing backup

BSOD while doing backup


My computer is 99% used for my freelance job, so mostly office use. I experience random crashes, which sometimes show me BSOD screens, and other times, the PC just reboots without any warning (and no BSOD indication; all I see in the Windows events is a few critial/errors events leading to nothing special).
BSOD issues never seem to point to the same source, so I'm rather lost.

Yesterday, I had 3 BSOD within 24 hours (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL twice and SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED).

What I do notice is that crashes seem to happen more frequently while my PC is doing a full backup (once a week) with StorageCraft ShadowProtect. I did reach the company, and they went through several diagnostics, but their software doesn't seem to be the culprit.

Now, before considering reformatting (which would be the very last step, as I have loads of data, and it is a big hassle to reinstall everything), I'd like your help and see if I can fix the issues first...

Please find the log in attachment. If anyone can give me some hint, so I know where to check, that'd be amazing!
