Error E4F3000B: PreSnap failed on volume

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm a former Ghost 15 user, and thought I'd try out SSR 2013 as a replacement for my upgraded Windows 8 desktop (as it's unclear as to whether Ghost will continue).  I'm running on the 60 day trial, but so far, not so good.

I created a backup as it used to exist in Ghost 15 under Windows 7 (which I uninstalled and selected the option to 'not' retain any settings in case I reinstalled later), and when it runs, I get the following error:

Error EC8F17B7: Cannot create recovery points for job: Drive Backup of System Reserved (*:\), (C:\), (D:\).
Error E4F3000B: PreSnap failed on volume  . (UMI:V-281-3215-6071)

Any thoughts as to how to resolve that so I can continue a successful evaluation?

Well I deleted and re-created the job and it still failed.  I rebooted and now it's letting me run it.

I rebooted after installing, but never rebooted after creating the jobs for the first time.  Perhaps there's something to that?

At any rate, seems to be humming along now.
