Check if you have any partition without drive letter. In Windows Disk Management. Assign to it a drive letter and then remove it. After that try to take snapshot.

One of the solutions would be copying out data from D: and recreating it completely. It could be that Partition Wizard did not update registry information properly. Thus try to shrink this partition for 500MB using Windows Disk Management. Then remove and assign a drive letter to it again.

Just to clarify.
1- shrink D partition
2- create new partition on a allocated space
3- to copy paste from D to E
4- delete D volume
5- create/format D partition
6- copy paste back to D
7- delete E
8- resize D

Please correct me if I got you incorrect.

Is copy and paste bast practice? Isn't it risk for error for example not coping hidden files etc.?

After #6 try to backup. Once you recreate the partition you do not need ro resize it. As long as you do these steps via Windows Disk Management - the issues caused by Partition Wizard should go.

Yes. Or you can use Robocopy.

As far as I understand it, you do not have system files on D: drive, right? If the answer is - right, then copy paste should be OK.

When I exclude the D drive from the backup the backup also fails. Even so you are at the opinion the re formatting the D partition may solve the issue?

does it fail if you select just D for backup? If not, then formatting is not necessary. The problem then would be in one of your two partitions which goes not have a drive letter. Can you assing drive letters to them?

If I select only D it does not fail (although it still ruing for 30 minutes at the stage of reaching for modified  files but it maybe for the first time it take this amount of time but in the even viewer I see the following error
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error querying for the IVssWriterCallback interface.  hr = 0x80070005, Access is denied.
. This is often caused by incorrect security settings in either the writer or requestor process.

Operation:
   Gathering Writer Data

Context:
   Writer Class Id: {e8132975-6f93-4464-a53e-1050253ae220}
   Writer Name: System Writer
   Writer Instance ID: {e1133dea-f354-42c0-8ebb-0b1b81453716}

Thank you so much for helping me out in this situation.

Try to backup partitions one by one. Then you will know which one is the culprit.
Additionally, create backup to new directory. And yes, the error message you get is possibly connected to problem of resize. That should be resolved by recopying the data back to newly formatted partition.

Did so, this way I found that the system partition cusses the issue, but since it work before doing the partition move I opened a ticket with the backup vendor.

PS I notified partitionwizard about the issue cussed by their software but got no respond. I would recommend using some of their competitor all are the same price

PartitionWizard is a chineese vendor as far as I know. There is a German tool Paragon Hard Disk Manager/Festplatten Manager 15 which does its job very good.
