BA2512 Unable to create vss snapshot

Postby stephenchoo » Fri Jan 23, 2015 11:54 am

I'm using BackupAssist v7.2.1 to do a full server backup. I had scheduled the full server backup from Monday to Friday at 11.50pm. It works fine all the time. Recently, when it was doing a full server backup on Monday, a critical error occurred, BA2512 Unable to create VSS snapshot. Detailed error: Access is denied. There was a failure in creating a directory on the backup storage location. Access is denied. It only occurs on Monday. Any idea of what's going wrong?

Hi,

It's Tim from BackupAssist.

This error can occur if there is a program or process running at the time of backup that is interfering with the backup.

To troubleshoot this problem, check whether there is an anti-virus scan running at the time of backup that is denying access to the backup.

I hope this helps.
