I have not seen this issue earlier.The windows backup explicitly reclaims space for the current backup by deleting older snapshots OR volsnap will automatically delete olderversions in case of Copy On In fact I was getting ready to replace this drive with another as it was almost full.

Any idea?does it occur only on heavy I/O? directory
Any help is appreciated. Thanks Peter Tuesday, August 10, 2010 11:16 AM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote Hi, Just got the same event 25 here. Consider reducing the IO load on the system or choose a shadow copy storage volume that is not being shadow copied.
Since the two target drives were used ONLY with the Windows Server Backup utility, and configured by the WSB utility, no other applications or services should have been using the drives. So the problem really seems to be when VSS should be trying to remove the oldest snapshot.

Have you used vsadmin.exe to adjust the default copy limit? Event Id 25 Volsnap Windows Server 2012 It appears that the volsnaps may be deleted due to large pagefile.sys or DedicatedDumpFile.sys activity on the disk making the volsnap grow in size during boot. How can I make this distinction? If you need more information, please let me know.
I never expected to loose BOTH backups at the same time, and due to budget restraints, two rotating backup drives seemed a logical solution.Here is text from the two VOLSNAP Event http://forumyaren.com/event-id/volsnap-error-event-id-25.php After this backup I have program to copy the backup files to the removable drive.

I created a dedicated dump file instead of using the pagefile.sys for system dump files. I have a RAID 5 array - 3 250GB SATA drives. abandoning the snap in progress during a period of high I/O. check my blog It only snapshots once a day, am i wrong?
Unfortunately, Microsoft has no intention to fix that problem, because Microsoft does not want to enter into competitionwith vendors of professional storage systems. Event Id 25 Volsnap Server 2008 R2 The reason shadow copies need to grow during a backup is that files are changing after the initial snapshot was taken. I rebooted the server and I noticed that WSB opened quickly but my backups were not accessible anymore from Recover..., only the one it did previously.

The shadow copies of volume x were deleted because the shadow copy storage could not grow intime I had a Windows Server 2008 R2 running Symantec BackupExec 2010 R2, doing Backup-to-disk-to-tape You mentioned you would update this thread when some useful information became available. None show up on the two replacement drives I'm now using, so I'd say not. This time it worked!
Is there any answer that Microsoft would be willing to provide for those of us that are struggling to find the answers? Only one drive got erased because we were lucky enough to catch the issue in time, we are keeping the second drive unplugged until the issue gets resolved.
