win32_shadowcopy Unsupported shadow copy context

    Question

  • The result of entering a (Get-WmiObject -list win32_shadowcopy).create("C:\","Backup") command into powershell is 

    ReturnValue      : 5
    ShadowID         : {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}

    However the ClientAccessible type of win32_shadowcopy is available for creation and accessible in file system after mklink /dWhich makes me feel confused. What is the reason for this job to end up with such an error?

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17601354/creating-a-shadow-copy-using-the-backup-context-in-a-powershell was not really helpful while trying to figure out the roots of the issue.

    Please, respond. I desperately need your help. Thanks in advance

  • Why do not use “ClientAccessible” instead of “Backup”?

    i need the non-persistent, auto-release type of shadow copy with full read/write capabilities to be created during this operation
