Shadow copy issue
Posted on 2009-05-06
I'm running Vista Ultimate 32 bit.
Recently I started having a strange problem with the backup. If I run a
backup (either native Vista backup or the third party, like Acronis), the PC
freezes almost immediately, and stays this way, so I have to manually
restart it. The Vista native backup gives me this message:
The creation of a shadow copy has timed out.
The strange things about this are:
1. Everything worked fine for over a year, I don't know what triggered this
2. This happens only if the backup runs on schedule, I still can backup
manually without any problems;
3. There are absolutely no records about this in the Event Viewer, like
backup had never run.
I would appreciate any help on this.
