Windows Event Log reports "Backup completed successfully. The VSS_E_PROVIDER_VETO the operation or The VSS Provider vetoed the operation." after creating a baseline or incremental recovery point with Backup Exec System Recovery (BESR)

Solution







This error is a results of one of the following:

  • A drive (partition) on the system is not formatted with NTFS.
  • A drive (partition) on the system is formatted with NTFS but has at least 100MB of free space for each drive (partition) being backed up.
  • Too much disk activity when the backup started and the Windows Snapshot Provider could not reliably determine a cutoff point for snapshot creation.


    Resolution:

    Please correct one or more of the environmental issues listed above and try the backup again.
