  • VSS error 0x8004230f on a brand new system.

    If your system is a brand new one then try the following steps...

    If you type "vssadmin list shadowstorage" command on console and ff the following error occurs on your system.....

    "No items found that satisfy the query."

    Then this means, basically there is no shadow copy storage created/ allocated in this system and that is why all the snapshots are failing. (This can occur if this is a newly created/installed system).

    The resolution is we should create/allocate shadow copy storage in this system.

    Then try the following steps to resolve this problem:

    Step:1 vssadmin list shadowstorage
    >>You should observe the following output...
    "No items found that satisfy the query"

    Step:2 vssadmin Resize shadowstorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=10%
    It will print the following information....
    "Successfully resized the shadow copy storage association."

    If it prints the following error
    "Error: The specified volume shadow copy storage association was not found."

    Then run the following step

    Step:3 vssadmin create shadow /For=C:
    (This command will create a shadow copy using Vssadmin. This comand will
    succeed and later we can delete this shadowcopy created by running "vssadmin delete shadows /all" command.)

    Step:4 vssadmin Resize shadowstorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=10%

    (MaxSize=10% is the recommended size.)

    The above steps will create shadow copy storage in your system and this shadow copy storage will be used to create/store shadow copies. This will resolve 0x8004230f error.
