Problem changing Shadow Copies storage to another partition
Posted on 2012-12-29
I setup a new SBS2011 server today and I ran into a problem changing the shadow copy storage volume for my data partition. I always create a separate partition just for Shadow Copies. When I go to change the volume to store the shadow copies I get a error "0x800423ld" The message states that copies are in use and can't be deleted. So I can't change the volume to my Shadow Copy partition. It's like the system did a shadow copy of the data partition already. The schedule is set for 7am and 12 noon. This happened around 3pm. I can't find the error above doing a Google search. I don't want to store the shadow copies on the Data partition. Can someone point me to the right info on how to fix this. Its a fresh system with no data on it. I was hoping to avoid deleting the partition and recreating it.
