    Volume Shadow Copy service starts and stops every few minutes

    I have got some issue with the Volume Shadow copy service on our SBS 2003 R2 server that will usually start and then stop every few minutes all day, since shadow copies are only scheduler for twice a day, so why is this cycling occurs? Also, the microsoft software VS service does the same thing? Any ideas?

    It might be possible that Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) that is running on a Windows Server 2003-based computer may crash when you try to remove imported transportable shadow copies. For more information go to this website - http://support.microsoft.com/?id=911062
