Drive snapshot issues for multi-drive PCs running Win 10 / Win 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am not sure if I am asking this question in the right place. If not please accept my apologies, - perhaps you could direct me to a more appropriate place?

    I have a number of PCs that are failing backups onto a WHS system. The same error occurs, "The computer failed to take a snapshot of the volume for backup"

    I have tried the usual chkdsk routines etc and all seem t be clean. In desperation I did a restore from a previous version and the backup then worked fine. That suggests this is not a hardware issue, but the PCs that are failing are quite new high performance machines. I have seen the same issue on a Win 7 machine also.

    Can you suggest what this problem is and what I can do to resolve them?

    Thank you.
