Volume shadow copy error

Hi,
I have volume shadow copy enabled on my server 2003 and I keep getting this error in event log.
VssAdmin: Unable to create a shadow copy: Either the specified volume was not found or it is not a local volume.
Command-line: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\vssadmin.exe Create Shadow /AutoRetry=5 /For=\\?\Volume{ddb0d5f4-6c23-11dc-aa39-000e0ca7ed9a}\'.

anyone seen this before?

thanks
