Hi guys and gals,

I hope some of you experiencinig VSS problems and are as frustrated with the solutions as I am find these tidbits helpful.

After trying everything listed by all the experts, the following steps solved my issue on a Win2k3 Server SP2 x86 machine:

1) Do all the other stuff first.
2) Under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Storage, Assign your admin account full control of this key.
3) Wipe out everything under the "VolumeSnapshot" key.
4) Under the Volume key, find the identifier that refers to your volume using diskpart, and make sure the service entry is "volsnap".
5) (and I think this is the key) Using diskpart, do a "select volume 0" (assuming it's volume 0 you want to manipulate) and THEN issue the command "att vol set shadowcopy"
6) VERIFY that Shadow Copy is "Yes" by doing a "detail volume"

After a reboot my shadow copy started working perfectly.

LOL! Guess I'm kind of new to EE... :)

This solution is to resolve occurances of error 12293 and 7001 in the event log, related to the Volume Shadow Service. Also relates to error 0x8004230f - "The shadow copy provider has an unexpected error while trying to process the specified operation."

Hope some of you find this useful! :)
