    hey gents - having an odd problem here - after a few weeks of normally functioning, fdisr is now giving me the error "unable to create static copy of active snapshot"

    the odd thing is, when i reboot, fdisr always allows 1 proper copy of the snapshot, but always on the second or subsequent attempts i get the abovementioned error.

    i havent really changed anything per se and i have no realtime security software running, so im stumped - anyone have any ideas?

    thanks!
