    Do any of the writers show anything other than STABLE in the State field or any that show Last error anything other than No error?

    Where should I see that? As I don't have a working provider at all I'm assuming that there won't be any data about it other that the error message I gave in #1

    What do you see from that "vssadmin list writers" command? Mine looks something like this:

    You do not say if you see any errors or State no stable.

    Your post one indicated a COM error thus the need to restart the COM services I pointed out. Make certain when you are looking at Services that you actually get the correct ones as there can be others with similar names.

    You should also check vssadmin list shadows and see how many shadow copies exist on your system. If you have a fair number and given the size of your backup it is probable that you do not have sufficient room on your drive to create the shadow copy for the backup. As a test you could try making a backup of a few folders and see if that works. If it does that even points more towards insufficient disk space.

    Ah, the image is difficult to read,apologies but all the entries say stable and no errors.

    Vssadmin list shadows gives "No items found that satisfy the query".

    And as my Macrium is the free version I cannot back up folders, only partitions.

    I thought I would try a System Restore but that failed straight away as follows:

    'There was an unexpected error in the Property page. System Restore encountered an error. Please try to run System Restore again. (0x81000203). Please close Property page and try again.'

    In Property page no drives were shown and it was just searching and finding nothing.
    Might be worth seeing what happens if you try to use System Restore to create a new Restore Point?
    I believe System Restore also uses VSS, so it may give some useful info/ error messages.

    Trouble is, like I said earlier as soon as I open System Restore I get SR1
    and if I open Configure System Restore I get SR2.

    In the first pic you can see 'searching' which it does until I close the window. It never finds any drives.
