VSS backups don't work with DrivePool


Recommended Posts

I have always used DrivePool and been very happy with it, as have many Forum members, but I am trying to replace my WHS2011 as I migrate to Win 10, but have had VSS failure troubles in assessing replacement backup solutions on my Gen 8 server.


I tried Acronis and Macrium and both give VSS failures, even if the backups ostensibly work but do not verify. Talking to DrivePool (Stablebit) they stated that they do not support VSS so it seems I have to find a non-VSS backup application or give up DrivePool, which I really do not want to do.


I also tried Veeam which failed for undiagnosed issues and Veritas report VSS issues.


Can anybody advise?


Update: I spoke too soon about WHS2011 because looking at Event Viewer for the first time, I see Shadow Copy Event-Viewer Volume errors there too so WHS2011 uses VSS too and cannot be relied on.
