    I'm having the same problem. Searching the internet seems to indicate the problem is related to a large number of generic volume shadow copies listed under device manager (when view hidden files is enabled). I have thousands of them that are grayed out but a few are not. I can delete them one by one but am having trouble finding a way to delete them all at once.
