Odd error


Recommended Posts

The following error:


VssWEnumWriterMetadata: GatherWriterMetadata failed, winerr -2147024882, error -1018

was output to the log when running a backup using retrospect. Retrospect's website says that error 1018 is an out of memroy error, but I see no reason why my PC should be out of memory. Does anyone know how to solve this?

Hi Robin,


This Windows error (winerr) may have some useful information listed in the Windows event viewer, have you checked there? The fact that this is VSS related leads me to believe that it could possibly be related to open files. What happens if you disable the option to backup open files and run another backup? Also, you don't post any useful particulars such as Retro version, Windows version, etc. Care to fill us in?
