Error while trying to backup.

I am trying to backup my computer using the WindowsXP Backup Utility. I am
getting the following error:

Backup Status

Operation: Backup

Active backup destination: File

Media name: "Backup.bkf created 22/02/2005 at 12:45"

Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:80042301

Aborting Backup.

----------------------

The operation did not successfully complete.

Event View Log says following:
Event ID: 8193
Volume Shadow copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine
IMultiInterfaceEventControl::GetSubscriptions. hr=0x80040155

Any ideas how to fix this

This issue normally occurs if you're using a FAT32 volume. Volume Shadow
Copy feature only supports NTFS volumes. If you enable this option, the
backup process will fail since FAT32 doesn't support the feature and
couldn't backup the files that are in the process of being written to.

Steps to disable Volume Shadow Copy if you're using a FAT32 volume:

1. Click Start >Programs >Accessories >System Tools >Backup.

2. Click the Advanced Mode link and select Backup Wizard.

3. Click Next and select Back up selected files, drivers, or network data.

4. Click Next and only select some files for testing propose.

5. Click Next and choose Desktop to store the backup file.

6. Click Next and click the Advanced button.

7. Select Normal backup and click Next.

8. Check the Disable volume shadow copy option and click Next.

9. Finish the backup wizard to backup the files.


If you're using an NTFS volume, try the steps listed below:

Open Regedt32.exe and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\setup

Change the "UpgradeInProgress" value to 0.
