NarrRetro replied to urza311's topic in ProfessionalWould just like to validate that msdtc -resetlog can be a good fix for this. It worked here. Trying to stop the VSS services doesn't work. As noted, the stop hangs under this condition. Retrospect will work after you try the stop, but without VSS you will get validation errors as files change between backup and verification. Why VSS isn't self-healing of any log problems is a usual Microsoft Mystery , would suppose. Thanks for this forum and the good info on it - saved me this time.
