Yeah reboot as well.

I also updated the help page with more fixes. But lets do a good ol faithful reboot. It might help clear out any left over problems with vss. :wink:

After reboot try the backup and let me know :wink:

I have v1.2.0 in testing now and will be out next Sunday. It has a fall back option to backup with the Windows API when VSS fails, so it will backup just like Erunt does when VSS fails :wink:
