  1. Help with a very bad VSS issue. Cannot find answer anywhere


    Hi, so i have been trying to create a back up and restore on windows 10 home. I am about to do some major modifications to my PC and would like to be safe about it. Every time I try and create a backup through the control panel or through settings I get an error. So i followed this error down a rabbit hole that just leads to more errors. And ive tried literally every thing i have found online to no avail. The first error I get when the backup fails is

    Looks good, so vssadmin list providers is
    Provider name: 'Microsoft Software Shadow Copy provider 1.0'
    Provider type: System
    Provider Id: {b5946137-7b9f-4925-af80-51abd60b20d5}
    Version: 1.0.0.7

    when i ask it to list volumes, shadows, and shadow storage it says nothing is found.

    I have run SFC /scannow and it came back clean. I have run DISM and it came back clean. I have run chkdsk and it came back clean. So im at a loss here. I have a boot cd or two. but i kinda would like my backup and restore functioning properly as well. Oh and ive tried disabling anti virus and windows defender and rebooting. So please if anyone can shed some light thatd be awesome, thank you!

    :)

    Failed to Create Volume Snapshot Macrium Error 0x8004230f VSS Error

    Hi, you might try this:
    Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) Troubleshooting - Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) Troubleshooting

    or the free cautious repair tool
    Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free/Pro
    - observing the steps and using only the relevant repairs

    More:
    How to Fix VSS Errors Step-by-Step

    Otherwise I suggest- assuming your disk and file system are sound-
    an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all progs, data and most settings

    You need an iso of the same base language and build- freely downloadable.

  4. Help with a very bad VSS issue. Cannot find answer anywhere

    VSS errors during upgrade to Windows 10, should I care?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    For better assistance, please share the information:

    • Are you using the installation media in USB or a DVD/CD?
    • Do you have any backup for Windows 10?

    The issue might have been occurred while installing/upgrading to Windows 10. The services may have not been loaded at the time of installation. So, I suggest you to check if the VSS service is running in Services by following the steps provided below:

    • Press Windows key + R key, type services.msc
      and press Enter.
    • From the list of services, locate and right click on Volume Shadow Copy
      and select Properties.
    • Check if the service is running. If not, set the startup type
      as Automatic, click on Apply and OK.
    • Restart the system and check for status.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.
