Event ID 482 In App Log

I have just taken over administration of a network and my first thoughts are the amount of 482 events occurring on the domain controllers.  One of the DC is running Exchange 2007.  Any assistance would be appreciated.  The events occur all day long, and I have no idea if anything changed recently to spawn these events as I just took over last week.  See below

Log: Application
Type: Error
Event: 482
Alert Time: 2014-01-13 14:20:52Z

Category: General
Username: N/A
Description: lsass (2684) An attempt to write to the file "\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy3188\WINDOWS\NTDS\edb.log" at offset 5227520 (0x00000000004fc400) for 512 (0x00000200) bytes failed after 0 seconds with system error 19 (0x00000013): "The media is write protected. ".  The write operation will fail with error -1032 (0xfffffbf8).  If this error persists then the file may be damaged and may need to be restored from a previous backup.

The error above you are relating to is not with your domain controller but with the Exchange server. This is usually due to low disk space. Make sure that all drives which have logs or database (EDB) have enough disk space. Refer to the below link for additional details...

I'm actually seeing this on both my domain controllers only one of them have Exchange installed and both have plenty of space available on them

Is this Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2
Is the latest service pack installed? (SP2 for 2008, SP1 for 2008 R2)?

Whats the brand of the server hardware? Are this local disks/a RAID/a SAN/a NAS?

Also post the output of

vssadmin List Writers
vssadmin List Shadows
vssadmin List ShadowStorage

Sometimes it helps to remove ALL existing shadow copies:

vssadmin Delete Shadows /All
