To diagnose the Volume Shadow Copy service writer problem, run the vssadmin command immediately after the backup failure:1. Click Start, and then click Run.

For example, the output might indicate that the Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (MSDE) or the Microsoft Active Directory writer failed. You may experience time-out errors on several writers, including the MSDE writer, the SQL writer, the NT Directory Service (NTDS) writer, the Windows Internet Naming System (WINS) writer, the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) writer, the Remote Storage writer, the certification authority writer, and the Microsoft Exchange writer. The following is sample output:
