    Backups keep failing on DumpStack.log.tmp


    Hey all,

    When trying to run a backup from a Dell Laptop to an external USB hard drive, the backup constantly gets stuck with the below error. This is Windows 10 Pro 2004.:
    \DumpStack.log.tmp
    Error: Failed to copy from Source : File is locked (C:\DumpStack.log.tmp): The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

    I have read on another forum that this file can be switched off in the registry. Here is the excerpt from the Microsoft Forum that I found using Google:

    dump stack logging can be disabled. To do so, enforce the following setting in Windows Registry:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl]
    "EnableLogFile"=dword:00000000
    In other words:

    1. Open the Registry Editor.
    2. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", "SYSTEM", "CurrentControlSet", "Control", and finally "CrashControl"
    3. Once you've opened the "CrashControl" key, look at the values pane to the right and look for "EnableLogFile". If it doesn't exist, create it. Its type must be "DWORD".
    4. Set its value to 0.
    5. Exit the Registry Editor.
    Once you enforced the aforementioned setting, restart your computer. Only after a restart you'll be able to delete both files.

    Alternatively, any other less intrusive ideas to work around this issue? This is a work colleagues laptop not mine.

    Thanks in advance as always!

    :)

    Backup fails

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I did Step 1 OK.

    Doing Step 2: Volume Shadow Copy is already running, but I have no SPP Notification Service in the list of services!

    I just tried to backup, and it failed again!

    Back in August when the Backup failed, someone told me about STARTING VSS. I did that then, and it appears to be running since then. He did not say anything about SPP. I replied to him, but he disappeared!
