Hi, we use a file backup software called Restropect from Roxio (was from EMC). The backup script is generating below error when trying to copy the files quota.md and quota.xml from the server's C drive. I think these files might have something to do with the vss shadowcopy feature, but we have never enabled this (or at least they are disable for all connected drive right now. I've just created a new shadow copy schedule for the below C drive to see if it might clear up some issue with the specific files quota.md and quota.xml files. I was just wondering if anyone might have any input on this- something going wrong on server and we should fix/repair something? REbuild the below files, etc?. The server has all latest patches and I've run chkdsk /f a few times /restarted, but the backup software still logged the below error. Any input would be great- thanks in advance, Mark

these files are used for quota management on your server

When you define quotas, the File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) stores information about these quotas in the quota.xml , quota.md , and databasefilescreen  files in the \System Volume Information\SRM  folder on the drive where the quotas were imposed initially
