Veeam Agent for Windows Free - Cannot find shadow copy of volume Recovery partition

Post by pchatellier »

Hello,

I've a problme with my free Agent for Windows.
My case number is 04286997.

I try to backup a physical Windows 212 R2 Standard Server with Veeam Agent Free.

I select volume level backup and I check "Operating system" on the volume selection.

We I start my backup, it fail with this error :
17/07/2020 09:56:22 :: Calculating digests Error: Cannot find shadow copy of volume Recovery partition
17/07/2020 09:56:51 :: Error: Cannot find shadow copy of volume Recovery partition

If I uncheck "Operating system" the backup is working fine.

I don't find how I can solve this issue.

Could you help me ?

Regards

Hi,

Please check Windows Event log, as this might give you a clue on the error message and keep working with our support team.

Thanks!

Hello pchatellier,

Try to update Veeam Agent for Windows to the latest version 4. This issue might be related to hidden recovery partition created by Windows updates and this behavior should be fixed with the latest version. Cheers!
