Volume Shadow Copy Service error - Event 12298

I am having trouble with the VSS service and it is affecting my NTBackups.  
The Volume Shadow Copy Service error - Event 12298 is a frequent error in the event log and I suspect this is the cause of my issue.
I have attached a screen shot of the event.
I have re-registered Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and installed Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) update rollup package for Windows Server 2003.
Still no joy.
Any ideas?

    Found this:
    What else do you have running while the backup is running?

    Judging by the error your server cannot handle the IO load - do you have perhaps a scheduled defrag running overnight with the backups, or something else IO intensive?
