  1. Macrium VSS Windows 10 and frustrated beyond belief


    Is there any absolute fix for the Macrium Reflect VSS issue that they must know plaques the free and assuming the paid version. I have been looking for a method for imaging the windows partition on my system for a while. I don't buy software till I know it works and everything I have attempted will not fully function with the imaging process on the trials. Macrium I like but everywhere I have looked to fix the VSS issue is like everyone has a different problem and there seems to be a million fixes. You can spend weeks going through all of the fixes and never get to the root.

    Most forums or people you speak too either have no clue or think they know more than they do. I do not claim to be the smartest in the building but eager to learn and can admit when I don't know which is why I stopped by. If no one knows is there somewhere you can point me to.

    When did the days go away where you could try software fully before you buy it. If this is the norm I am starting to understand why people pirate software more and more.

    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. Macrium VSS Windows 10 and frustrated beyond belief

    Obtaining error code 0x8000ffff retrying without VSS writers from Partition Copy Macrium reflect

    Windows event View shows multiple errors

    Microsoft Windows Cap 12 Event ID 513

    SQLVDI Event code 1

    SQLVDI Event code 1

    SqlWriter Event code 24582

    Microsoft windows Cap 12

    Curiously Macrium reflect completes the partition copy "without VSS writers", and it appear to be ok.

    I am running Windows 10. I had previously deleted SQL version 8 as it was incompatible with ACT. Is this a possible cause of the errors?

    I turned on windows File Backup, ( previously off), reset and errors are unchanged. File Backup seems to work fine.

    At this point I am lost. My technical skill levels don't cover this..

    Thanks

    Further comment. All these SQL and VSS errors went away with a reformat and new install of windows. and Macrium Reflect performed as advertised with no errors. (Unfortunately the reformat also killed many programs authorization codes, including that of Memeo).

    When I re-installed my now converted to a trial copy of the windows 8 version of Memeo backup, the VSS errors returned. I presume it grabs the VSS related software. I assume the windows 10 version does the same, even if it is a "new engine".

    Now I am wondering if Microsoft File Save feature would fulfill the same function without conflicting creating VSS errors. It saves files once an hour versus the instant save of Memeo.

    Still looking for comments and advice.

    Thanks
