Goto computer properties | Advanced system settings | System protection tab.
Uncheck all drives, hit apply. This will turn of shadow copies and clear them.
Reenable the drives, hit apply. Since you just cleared them all you may also want to hit the create button to repopulate at least one.
Run the backup again.
I'll be taking this in to Microsoft to figure out root cause. Unknown right now.
Wow, good call. I've been backing up my Sony Vaio (running Vista) to a rotating set of external 500gig USB drives and it's been fine so far until the process failed twice in a row with two different 500gig drives. I even tried putting a blank disk in the external box and that also failed with the same error. Tried your steps above and it's working fine. Thanks!
