    When trying to backup using ShadowProtect Server, I get this error:

    Service 501 Cannot create snapshots The semaphore timeout period has expired. 0x80070079

    I believe that this is due to a VSS Writer issue. To fix this, I will first try restarting the faulting VSS Writer service, failing that I will restart the server.
