I ran vssadmin list writers, none of the writers are in an error state.

Another expert has recommended that the VSS may be broke - can anyone help to troubleshoot this issue?

It failed to take the snap shot and returned with the following error:

An error occurred while saving the snapshot. msg.snaps.hot.error - quiesce-rror - view error.
