    VSS is corrupt and need to enable to create backup


    Just inform that VSS is corrupted and enable to create backup. Acronis referred me after doing diagnostic test as to why it could not create a backup with their software. They suggested I contact Microsoft to resolve this.

    Hi, two repair utilities come to mind:

    a. Tweaking.com's free cautious repair tool offers a number of repairs. One of them is VSS.
    Just search for it: select only the repair you need, and follow the preparatory steps.

    b. Macrium Reflect offers a feature to fix VSS issues:

    Troubleshooting Microsoft VSS errors - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase

    Finally I just came across this, by Acronis... did they not suggest it?

    He ran the Acronis VSS doctor. I just reran it after performing the Macrium attempted fix with the following 2 errors:

    The one that is 31.4 kb was done after using Macrium. The one that is 27.7 was done by the Acronis tech without attempting to fix the VSS issue.


    I just ran the Tweaking Windows Repair tool in Safe Mode.
    I selected Volume Shadow Copy Service. I believe that is the VSS you were referring to?
    I then tried Acronis again and it failed. I ran the Acronis VSS Doctor again and here is the 32.6 kb log:

    You can always create a rescue USB stick and boot from that. It can be used to create a backup image because it doesn’t use the VSS writer.

    After the above fix attempts, I had Acronis remote in and he was able to get the backup to proceed by changing to high performance. We ran the Acronis VSS Doctor again and the 2 issues persist:

    VSS Writer Status
    Some VSS writers were failed. Event log may contain more details.
    (Red indicator button ) Sql Server Writer (8) Failed. Non-retryable error.

    2nd issue:

    Disk I/O Load
    Some disks may be overloaded. VSS may behave incorrectly under such conditions. Stop heavy operations or wait until completion.

    (Red button indicator) O C: D: Operations/sec 142, Disk time 90%
    (Green button indicator) 1 F:- Operations/sec 3 Disk time 5%

    And finally here is the Event log which I just ran:

    Thank you very much for taking the time to reply.

    I take it that your problem isn't fixed. Therefore time for basics. VSS failure may be just one symptom of deeper problems. I have no idea if or how you maintain your PC.

    a. Check your disks
    HDTune v2.55 free Health and Error scan tabs.
    Repeat for all disks.
    Post the summary result- NOT a lengthy text report.

    b. If ok, from an admin command or Powershell prompt run
    chkdsk X: /scan

    for each disk, changing X for the relevant drive letter.
    Post the summary result- NOT a lengthy text report.

    c. If ok, similarly run
    SFC /SCANNOW
    Post the summary result- NOT a lengthy text report.

    d. Post a screenshot of your disks and partitions using a 3rd party partition manager ensuring all text is visible.

    I note you still have build 1903.
    Is Windows Update working normally?
    See your Update History.

    Your specs don't show the model of your PC. What is it? Roughly how old is it?

    Some Dell PCs now offer diagnostics built in to the BIOS.

    Does yours have this feature?

    CHKDSK images attached. I wasn't able to copy and paste so I took 2 photos and hope you can see them.

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.836]
    (c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow

    Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.

    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.
    For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
    windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
    repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>

    It is now fixed.

    The Acronis VSS doctor is not showing any errors after scannow fixed the corrupted windows files.

    I am now able to run an Acronis backup and it is validated.

    Thank you for all of your help on this issue!!

    Stay Safe!!!

    now's a good time to start or continue using disk imaging routinely to consolidate things and give you a good system to restore to, and thereafter continue using it routinely and periodically. E.g. Macrium reflect (free-paid) - disk images to large enough external storage.
