Yes, the E: drive is a standard RAID 5 array.  What options do you recommend disabling?  The "E" drive is important as it stores users home directories, as well our shared drive.

Hi Duckey:

Your comment was indicated in my link at the bottom:  

"Hence, while configuring a backup job to back up a Windows 2003 machine with selections made from the Shadow Copy Components, it should be ensured that the Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider Service and the Volume Shadow Copy Service are running."

None of the suggestions have worked, however when I query my writers status I see the following writers all except one are in state FAILED.  I should also note this problem started once I upgrade from W2K Server to W3K Server Standard.  Any suggestions?

FYI.  Apparently good ol' microsoft has a known issue with VSS in W3K Standard.  They have a patch they provide when you contact their support group.  The patch isn't publicly available.  This resolved my issue.

Please PAQ this question.  Thank you.
