PSConfig is for Sharepoint updates and shouldn't affect the VSS Writers. It may have affected the sharepoint writer but thats about it.

Restart the volume Shadow copy Service and re-run vssadmin list writers.

Leave it as manual for now - Its the default value for the service.

When was the last time that the server was restarted? - Is it up-to-date?

it restarted last night I checked to see if it was updates but it just said unexpected shutdown.  yes it is up to date through WSUS I have it set to install critical and security updates automatically.  

I'm on the server now and I'm having the server check for updates online.

only 2 IE updates and a lot of optional updates But I never do those.

Can you restart the server again and advise if the problem still exists after the reboot?

When you restarted the sharepoint VSS Writer does it still say timed out on vssadmin?

I think the restart is probably best. You could do each writer one at a time but the reboot will do them all.

Let us know how you get on.

i rebooted and same issue. DO you think running PSconfig might solve the issue.  When I run the command in sharepoint management it keeps telling me false.

no resolution!!  I installed Microsoft windows Server Best Practice Analyzer and ran it. One of the erros it found was backup failed because of SQL writer issue. But it does not give a solid answer as to what is causing the writer to fail.

Try re-registering VSS -- this will often cure the problem.

To do that, download the attached .bat file and remove the .txt extension -- run it (in an administrator command prompt) and then reboot your server.

Also, you may want to re-register the x64 dll's.  So run these commands at an admin command prompt as well (none of this will hurt your system, and can only help):

Net stop vss
Net stop swprv
regsvr32.exe /i %windir%\system32\eventcls.dll
regsvr32.exe /i %windir%\system32\swprv.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\vssui.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\vss_ps.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\msxml.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\msxml2.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\msxml3.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\msxml4.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\ole32.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\oleaut32.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\es.dll
regsvr32.exe %windir%\SysWOW64\comsvcs.dll
vssvc /register

You may not have the x64 msxml4.dll installed.  So, don't worry if that one fails on this run.

Again, reboot when completed.

Once done, you should be able to run a vssadmin list writers command without errors.
