My backup has failed 3 times this week.  Now the only thing that has changed this week is i moved the scheduled time up 2 hours to 730pm instead of 530pm.  The drive on which exchange is installed is running very low on space less than 2gb.  I am in the process of getting a new server ready for a migration.  I have since moved the schedule back to 530pm because i feel it may be conflicting with other scheduled tasks.

I have attached the log files from SBE as a resource.

AOFO Error on the log. You might need to re-register the VSS writer.Check the below link for solution

so after 4 successful backups, last nights failed again with the following errors.

V-79-57344-65233 - AOFO: Initialization failure on: "\\NTSERVER3\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
Snapshot provider error (0xE000FED1): A failure occurred querying the Writer status.

Check the Windows Event Viewer for details.

Writer Name: Exchange Server, Writer ID: {76FE1AC4-15F7-4BCD-987E-8E1ACB462FB7}, Last error: The VSS Writer timed out (0x800423f2), State: Failed during freeze operation (9).

I did apply the vss update form Microsoft kb940349-v3-x86 last week.

I have attached the latest log file to.

Thanks in advance for any help..
