It cannot shadow a copy, you can create.
Either the specified volume was not found, or it is not a local volume.
C: Windows system32 vssadmin.exe Create shadow / AutoRetry = 15 / For = \? Volume {777516db-9669-11de-89d5-001bfc66bc7f}

I don’t know how to fix this problem. I’ve deleted and recreated the shots several times, but nothing seems to help. This is a Hyper V 2008 R2 server backup. Thanks in advance for your help.

Reason

The snapshot provider selected for the backup job is not installed On the server for backup.
