  2. Volume Shadow Copy Service error: A critical component required by the Volume Shadow Copy service is not registered.

    Hi,

    Thank you for getting back with a reply.

    I suggest you to start the Volume shadow copy service and check. Follow these steps:

    a. Click Start and type services.msc in the search box.

    b. Search for the Volume shadow copy service and make sure the start- up type is automatic.

    i. Right click on the service

    ii. If the service is stopped, then Start the service

    iii. Select Properties

    iv. And in the Start-up type select Automatic.

    c. Click Ok.

    Keep us posted on Windows related queries and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Hyper-V on Windows Home Edition?

    In my "Services (Local)", the following are listed:

    Hyper-V Data Exchange Service

    Hyper-V Guest Service Interface

    Hyper-V Guest Shutdown Service

    Hyper-V Heartbeat Service

    Hyper-V Remote Desktop Virtualization Service

    Hyper-V Time Synchronization Service

    Hyper-V VM Session Service

    Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Requestor

    Since Hyper V isn't supposed to be on Windows 10 Home, I'm wondering what's going on and why it is in my Services. Are there any other services which would appear in Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise or Education that shouldn't appear in Windows 10 Home Services?

    Thanks!

    Backing up a Hyper-V virtual machine fails due to Volume Shadow Copy Service

    The full error is:

    Backup failed to complete. A Volume Shadow Copy Service operation failed. Please check "VSS" and "SSP" application event logs for more information. Detailed error: The operation ended before completion.

    Upon checking the event log, it says:

    The backup operation that started at '‎2020‎-‎05‎-‎08T21:33:38.477000000Z' has failed because the Volume Shadow Copy Service operation to create a shadow copy of the volumes being backed up failed with following error code '0x807800A1'.

    What am I trying to do?

    I'm running Windows Server 2016 as a Hyper-V host. I have some virtual machines that I would like to back up using the Windows Server Backup feature as shown here:


    Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy service missing and removed 7d16ac00-6ce1-49fd-b87c-09e356142342?upload=true.png


    I am backing these VMs to a remote shared folder and eventually get these backed up on a schedule on a daily basis (but that's outside this post). The issue is that every time I try to backup these VMs, the above error message appears. For whatever reason,
    these backups work just fine in our test environment but do not work in our production environment.

    I did some reading and found that the Volume Shadow Copy service has to be running in order for this to work. I looked in Services and found that it wasn't running. I started it and enabled Automatic startup. This did not work. I found that there are dependencies
    on this service (such as Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider service) that have be running too. These also did not correct the issue.

    Our Windows firewall is turned off and antivirus is disabled too.

    Does anyone have any suggestion or solution to this issue?

    Thanks.
