Did you check the status of VSS writers? You can check them by below command.
"vssadmin list writers" - all the writers should be visible and stable.

Please refer the below mentioned MS KB article for the same.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2009272

As per the KB article "The system writer fails because permissions to files in the %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\ or %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames directories are incorrect."

The above KB should resolve the issue, but still if does not then you will have to refer the Application or System event logs for more info regarding this error.
