System State /Shadow Copy Components cant be backed up with FlashBackup type policy.

 

try with MS-Windows as policy type

Open a command prompt and run the command: vssadmin list writers

All the writers listed should be in Stable state with no errors.
If the writers are not stable restart the server and then check them again and let us know
