Scheduled Backup continues to fail

My scheduled backup on the server continues to fail.  Here is what the log states when I try to "Backup Now"

Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.

Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:0x8004230f.

The best specific proposal I found was disabling shadow copy to reenable the backup.

Maybe VSS hotfixes

Tell me what are backing up the files to?

Usually If you are having problem backing up shadow copy, you will also have error for shadow copy of the drive which sometimes is a problem to an isulated partition or disc.
Any way take a look a this link:

Somehow VSS was disabled.  I restarted, and successfully backed up.

Nice, so rebooting could have solved the problem?

The lack of services is mentioned in this blog,  but it refers to other error codes.
