Windows server backup failing - volume shadow copy issue
Posted on 2016-07-27
I have a Windows Server 2011 Small Business and I have developed an issue in which the backup is failing every time.
Due to the error messages i believe this is related to Volume Shadow Copy. One reason i think this is because I use another software called Cobian for copying files and it reports errors aboutr Volume shadow copy.
I have recently changed the administrator password for this server. I'm not sure if that is related. I had a ransomware issue on this network and I have not been able to use windows server backup successfully. Right now I am cancelling a backup job that started yesterday at 6 pm.
Any recommendations on where to start on troubleshooting this will be greatly appreciated.
