My backups are constantly failing with an error of :

The backup was not successful. The error is: Windows Backup failed while trying to read from the shadow copy on one of the volumes being backed up. Please check in the event logs for any relevant errors. (0x81000037).

I have tried different destination for the backups and I cannot figure out why this is happening.

When running Backup and Restore to create images on Windows 7, I get the following error message:

Biggest concern is taking backups that are corrupt and not restoreable.

This is Windows 7, I backup to an external hard drive and it has always functioned perfectly until this month. Last two tries have returned the error message above. I'm running on an HP Pavilion, 4GB Ram, Windows 7 Home edition, 64 bit system.

Microsoft's site acknowledges the issue but I don't see a resolution there. I don't even know what a shadow copy is let alone why it can't be read.

Everything else works. No Malware or Virus issues. I have noticed an issue though that may be related. Event scheduler "says" my schedule is accepted but it doesn't run automatically as it should and actually tries to run on a different day.

Example, I have a scheduled backup on the 17th of each month, after Patch Tuesday, but Windows backup ignores that and tries to run on the 12th.

When the backup HD is not "on" as I don't keep it on unless I'm preparing for the backup.

Backup to a USB attached 500GB HDD failed error: 0x81000037

Backup to a USB attached 500GB HDD failed error: 0x81000037 Icon

I have the same problem trying to do a Backup to a USB attached 500GB harddrive. I've used msconfg to turn off all but MS services and eliminate the normal startup items, but Backup still fails reading the shadow copy.

This system came with Vista Ultimate 64 installed, and backup worked fine. The OEM supplied me with the Windows 7 Ultimate 64 upgrade which I installed with no problems, except for the Backup failure.

The backup failure was not noted until approximately a month after the installation was complete.

Running on Windows 7 64-bit for over a year now and in the past 2 months I noticed an error message popped up after I attempted a back-up, and it displayed the following: Check your backup

Windows Backup failed while trying to read from the shadow copy on one of the volumes being backed up. Please check in the event logs for any relevant errors.

My target backup location is an internal 2TB WD HD that was designated as the D: drive. After this issue appeared I naturally searched online and attempted several different solutions, including the complete deletion of the old back-up (in case it had been corrupted), however each time the result was the same: it almost completes backing up. then fails with the same error code.
