  1. Windows 10 Backup Failed: Error code 0x81000019


    The error message says,

    A shadow copy could not be created. Please check "VSS" and "SPP" application event logs for more information.
    Details: the writer experienced a non-transient error. If the backup process is retried, the error is likely to reoccur.

    I have written a system image to my external drive once but this process has never completed.

    I'm backing up to an 8TB (Windows says 7.28 TB) WD MyBook that currently has 5.98 TB free. (The only thing on it is the system image I wrote to it as soon as I bought it a week ago.) In "Manage Windows Backup disk space," it reports the following:

    Data file backup: 0 bytes
    System image: 1.25 TB
    Other Files: 50.32 GB
    Free space: 5.98 TB
    Total size: 7.28 TB

    In Event Viewer, there are two seemingly related errors.

    Windows Backup
    Level: Error
    Event ID: 4100
    Backup did not complete successfully because a shadow copy could not be created. Free up disk space on the drive that you are backing up by deleting unnecessary files and then try again.

    Windows 10 Backup Failure Error code: 0x81000019

    Looking to see if anyone can help...

    Windows 10 from a Windows 7 upgrade.
    Windows 7 system backups worked fine, stopped after migration.

    Get the following error:


    Windows 10 Backup Failed: Error code 0x81000019 [​IMG]


    Also see lots of errors in the event viewer about VSS issues


    Windows 10 Backup Failed: Error code 0x81000019 [​IMG]



    Attaching event viewer export:

    evntvwr.zip

    Interesting one is the volume shadow copy service times out and then stops:

    The VSS service is shutting down due to idle timeout.

    Windows 10 Backup Failed: Error code 0x81000019 [​IMG]


    I have to start the volume shadow copy service manually after.


    I've tried:

    "Clean Boot" - https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/kb/929135
    disabled startups and non ms services - no change

    Tried a sfc /scannow - which reported no errors

    chkdsk reports no errors

    It talks about low disk space in one of the event viewer entries but there is 40GB free


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.
