    I have no idea why VSS is no longer working oin my Windows 7 x64 system. VSS is not working using Drive Snapshot or Active @ Disk Image.'

    Drive Snapshot gives me this error:

    Active @ Disk Image gives me this error:

    VSS is started and is set to automatic. Also, I have also sun sfc /scannow and a repair install which did not seem to do anything.

    Any ideas?

    I'm sorry to ask the obvious, no images to restore?
    Somebody else is having a similar problem: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=264304&page=2 (see from post # 29)

    Check the event viewer > custom views > administrative events. Your looking for anything that says VSS.

    I had this issue about 2 days ago. If you dont find anything with the sfc /scandsk, run a disk check. May have bad sectors. To do that go to start > computers > right click the drive your backing up and go to properties > tools > error checking > select both boxes and schedule it. Save all work and restart. Wait to see what that turns up.

    Mine came up clean, but I used Seagate Seatools HD software on mine and ran the long generic and long DST and it failed both. I chalked it up to a failed HD.

    Here's something weird, I get no VSS errors with Drive Snapshot, ShadowProtect, or O&O Disk Image. Of course, this was after I re-registered VSS. I do however still get VSS_E errors when I use Active @. But that doesn't matter now; I'm switch back to DriveSnapshot.
