Exchange 2007 VSS Writer Missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, We have a 2008 SBS Server with Exchange 2007 installed with Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 which is running a Full backup of Exchange each night. The problem we have is Backup Exec fails to backup the Exchange Database becasue the Exchange VSS Writer is missing. Please can anyone advise how we can restore or reinstall the Exchange VSS Writer?

    Backup Exec Error message:
