Looking for some help. We seem to be getting two constant errors in our event log every night at the same time that we are running Acronis. At 8:30 PM we run Acronis on the C:\ only. Halfway through the process, it performs the normal "Locking partition C:..." It later finishes the task normally it seems. However about 30 seconds after the Locking of C... We receive these two Event IDs: 12298 Volume Shadow Copy Service error: The I/O writes cannot be held during the shadow copy creation period on volume %1. The volume index in the shadow copy set is %2. Error details: Open[%3], Flush[%4], Release[%5], OnRun[%6]. _________________________________________________________ 8 The flush and hold writes operation on volume C: timed out while waiting for a release writes command. Can anyone explain these two events? How do I get them to stop. I would also like to add that the regular shadow copying of the C:\ is disabled.
