    Persistent VSS snapshot gets removed from restored VM

    Persistent VSS snapshot is getting removed for some volumes on my VM on VMWare, below are the steps I used to do this

    1] Take persistent VSS snapshot of SQL using SQl writer

    2] Take VM snapshot and backup with one of the backup agents

    3] Restore the same snapshot of VM

    When I power on the restored VM the persistent VSS snapshot I took before backup gets removed for one of the volumes for others it is still there as expected.

    I have faced this issue very rarely, I use this method to take backups regularly but it has failed with this error only 3 times out of 1000.

    Earlier I thought this was due to system drive but it has happened on other drives as well.

    Problem backup failed due to a VSS snapshot error

    Failed to Create Volume Snapshot Macrium Error 0x8004230f VSS Error

    I have a full disk no other partitions on the disk. I mean one partition only.

    Problem backup failed due to a VSS snapshot error [​IMG]

    I restored from a previous backup and found out that my PC was booting from Disk Zero and not the Windows disk, so had to recreated the MBR. Which seems to work now. But still have that VSS problem.
