Credit to the maker of FBackup, it's been a huge help to me. I've been having an intermittent problem though since upgrading to 4.5.229 and replacing my external backup drive (prior to that I think I was about one year behind on updates). I have a nightly backup setup and I sometimes get the following error message in my backup logs :
" Could not create Volume Shadow Copy. Locked files will not be copied. Cannot connect to the vss server. The system cannot find the file specified "
When I first got the error I followed the instructions here : http://www.backup4all.com/download/pdf/Volume-Shadow-Copy-Service.pdf and things worked fine for about two weeks. Today I see the error message again. Each time I get the error, I am able to manually run the backup without problems. I can't figure out why this is happening at such random times. It's important that I get files backed up that are in use, because Outlook and Quickbooks are open almost 24/7 on my pc. I just installed 4.5.232 today since I see that is the latest version now. Has there been any bug fixes that would correct my problem?
