    Hello everyone, I have a server running windows server 2012 r2 and I'm am trying to create a Volume Shadow Copy on my S:/ Drive but I get the following error.
    "Failed to create a shadow copy of volume S:\ . Error 0x80042306. The shadow copy provider had an error. Check the system and application event logs for more information.
    I see this error in the application logs

    Some thing to note:
    This is a completely brand new install on windows server 2012 r2
    The drive I am trying to create a shadow copy consist of 24 drive in raid 60 (hardware raid using megaraid sas 9280-24i4e)

    I was able to enable volume shadow copy after formatting the drive and change file system from NTFS to REFS (before I could not even enable it; This was on a previous installation)
    I am able to enable and create a VSS on my C:/ Drive
    Their is 65TB available on the S:\
