Windows Server 2003 Backup Utility

By Wiloooooo!! ·
I am experiencing a couple of errors using the Windows 2003 Server Backup Utility.

1. I installed Farstone Drive Clone, used it a couple of weeks and didn't convince me of it's service so I uninstalled it.

2. After that I am trying to do a normal backup using the backup utility that Microsoft Provides, I had no success with it.

3. First I had an error of VSS which there was a hotfic that apparently solved the issue.

4. After that when I try to do a backup, even of small size, it comes up with the following error:

Backup Status
Operation: Backup
Active backup destination: File
Media name: "Server01 Backup.bkf created 8/6/2008 at 5:11 PM"

Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.
Timeout before function completed

Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:0xffffffff.

Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:ffffffff
Aborting Backup.


The operation did not successfully complete.


Please help me solve this problem. Other people have had this problem after uninstalling backup software, it looks like it installs it's own VSS and doesn't restore it's original VSS.
