I rescheduled the Shadow Copy on all of my servers, Since then none of them work. Or I should say none of them perform copies automatically.  I have to log on to everyone and do a manual copy.

I have tried deleting the old schedule and creating a new one, but that did not work either.

How are you scheduling them?  Under what user context?

I go to properties of the drive and select Shadow Copy / settings / schedule.  As far as the User context?  I do not know what you mean.  But I am logged on as a Domain Admin.

Try this - replacing the all CAPS items for your environment...

Start->Run->cmd <Enter>
at the command-line, type

schtasks /create /ru system /sc WEEKLY /d MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI /st 07:00:00 /tn "SHADOW G" /tr "vssadmin.exe Create Shadow /AUTORETRY=3 /For=G:"

I tried it.  While it created the task, it gave the result of "Could not Start"  

I manually created the task and while it said it ran it did not create a copy in the list.

an exit code of 0 indicates that the scheduled job completed successfully.
So, something else is amiss... : (
Not sure where the 'could not start' came from...?
