Intermitten Failure

I have a 2012 RDS server we are trying to backup.  Everyone once in a while it fails to perform the backup.  It will give an error like this..

The next time the machine tries to backup will be successful.  Unfortunately, this error is driving the tech support guys in house nuts, they don't like errors.

Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

The transfer of the backup of '(Volume Labeled 'System Reserved'); C:\; E:\' on 'gs-app3' failed

  • One odd thing is the "\\.\PhysicalDrive45&#39" this just does not look right

    If you look at the drives it tries to backup (C:\ E:\ and &#39) I would guess there is some odd storage device (&#39) that is causing the issue

    VSS is trying to snap the device &#39 and this is failing.
