    Occasionally when I try to perform a full backup in vista it fails. I get a
    vss error. Rebooting gets it to work again, but given a week or two it
    comes back. What can be done?


    Thanks!
    Joe.

    The error I get is :

    Failed to create the shared protection point on the source volumes.
    (0x8078006b)

    and additional info:

    The shadow copy provider had an unexpected error while trying to process the
    specified operation. (0x8004230F)

    Thanks!
    Joe
