You need to set the startup type for the Volume Shadow Copy Service to Manual.

 

Run - services.msc (enter)

Double-click on the Volume Shadow Copy Service and change the startup type to Manual.

Reboot the server.

Alternatively also try to backup using NTbackup and see if it is successful.... I am certain that it would fail as well ..

Hello, Rizwan, nbutech..Thanks for the replies I appreciate them.

 

Rizwan, I did as you instructed and the Server was rebooted. The backup is completing successfully.

nubtech, beforehand someone did try to run the NTbackup and it did fail.

 

 

Best Regards
