    Backup Status

    Operation: Backup

    Active backup destination: File

    Media name: "Backup 010604.bkf created 16/07/2004 at 2:17 PM"





    Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:80042301

    Thanks Dave

    I didnt find anything that covers my issue.

    I am using NTFS file format and have used backup before without any problems. I did a google search for the error message and found others with the same problem but no list of the actual fix. I have done everyrhing listed in the posts but still no luck. (it suggested checking COM+ and 2 registry settings which were as per the suggested settings.

    Any other ideas?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by DaveA on 18-Jul-04 09:46. Changed the link to a shorter one)</P>See " Volume Shadow Copy Technology


    It has several items about Windows XP but bottom line is
    "For more information about volume shadow copy technology, see Windows XP Professional Help and Support Center.
    Note
    Volume shadow copies require that you use NTFS for your file system."

    Hope this helps

    Edit I found the follwing count at Google,com
    "Results 1 - 10 of about 913 from microsoft.com for "volume shadow copy". (0.14 seconds)"

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
