    Just inform that VSS is corrupted and enable to create backup. Acronis referred me after doing diagnostic test as to why it could not create a backup with their software. They suggested I contact Microsoft to resolve this.

    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.

    Any suggestions?

    VSS is corrupt and need to enable to create backup

    When creating another account, its corrupted

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues creating a new user account. I’ll certainly help you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • When you say, “When creating another account, its corrupted” is the new user account getting corrupted?
    • When you say, “It also doesn’t give me the settings when you create an account” which settings are you looking for?
    • How are you creating a new user account?
    • What is the exact issue that you are facing on the new user account?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on the computer?


    I would suggest you to try enabling hidden admin account and then create a new user account and check.



    Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Type command prompt in the search bar on the
      Taskbar.
    2. Right click on the command prompt icon and select
      Run as administrator.
    3. Type in the following commands one by one and hit
      Enter
      :

      net user administrator /active:yes
    4. After enabling the hidden admin, refer the steps in the article

      Create a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
      .


    Note: Make sure to disable hidden admin by using the command
    net user administrator /active:no after performing the troubleshooting steps.



    Please reply with more information on the issue to help you further.



    Regards,
