Persistent VSS snapshot gets removed from restored VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Persistent VSS snapshot is getting removed for some volumes on my VM on VMWare, below are the steps I used to do this

    1] Take persistent VSS snapshot of SQL using SQl writer 

    2] Take VM snapshot and backup  with one of the backup agents

    3] Restore the same snapshot of VM

    When I power on the restored VM the persistent VSS snapshot I took before backup gets removed for one of the volumes for others it is still there as expected.

    I have faced this issue very rarely, I use this method to take backups regularly but it has failed with this error only 3 times out of 1000.

    Earlier I thought this was due to system drive but it has happened on other drives as well
