Unable to view any local drives within SSR console while trying to back it up. While local drives are visible under my Computer.


Error EC8F1780: Cannot successfully reconcile changes since last session.
Error EC8F1771: Cannot enumerate the current drives on this system.Error E0BB0147: The operation 'Snap Volume' is not currently enabled for this Volume. (UMI:V-281-3215-6016)


Windows 7 Professional Edition SP-1 (x64) only where DRVSTORE folder is not available


Symsnap not registered correctly even though it is  showing under windows services and due to which the drives enumeration is not working correctly to pull the sector details within the SSR console.
