I have this error 0x80042316 when a shadow copy is run in Server 2012 File server

Error: Fail to create a shadow copy of volume X:\.
Error 0x80042316: Another shadow copy creation is already in process. Wait a few moments and try again.

I know there is no other shadow copy process running and it keeps showing me this error after many tries.

If I reboot, it works right after the reboot but it will fail again when it is run in schedule later.
I schedule it to run once a day.
If you know the direction to fix this error or point me to any hot fix, your input is appreciated.

    Try re-registering the mentioned DLL's at the bottom of the screen.

    I tried that but regsvr32.exe give me a different error 0x80070715 with the first dll file eventcls.dll so I stop trying this fix.

    After I path some MS update and reboot servers a few times, the problem went away.
