Over the last few days I have noticed VSS errors stating:
VssAdmin: Unable to create a shadow copy: Another shadow-copy creation is in progress
While troubleshooting i have also noticed that when I run vssadmin list writers, it freezes at
Waiting for responses.
These may be delayed if a shadow copy is being prepared.

Currently I can not reboot the server as most posts I am reading state, is there any other way to possibly resolve these issues which I believe to be related?
If further info is needed please let me know

thanks
