Unable to exclude files from snapshot
Dima P. wrote:To tell the truth there is no need to open the case for this particular error/ warning since backup is eventually created. The error is displayed when specified files cannot be excluded due Microsoft Shadow Copy Optimization writer being inactive or timed out. When it happens VEB cannot leverage it to exclude the specified files from the previously created snapshot and you got this notification in backup session, however created backup file is fully operation.

- The best way to utilize exclusions is to select several big files. Selecting thousands of smaller files will probably cause Microsoft optimization writer to fail.
- Issue might be fixed by rebooting the OS at some point.
- If the exclusions are not critical, switch to volume level backup / entire pc backup mode or disable the file level exclusions. These to modes support the bare metal recovery while file level recover does not.
