I am having the same problem. How exactly do I disable the BIOS memory, or whatever it is? By the way, I have the code, but where do I put the code? I am totally lost!

Don't know if this will work universally, but it worked for me on my Dell Latitude D520 running Windows XP when I was getting this error the first time I used Mozy to back up my files. Click on Start, click on Run, type msconfig, hit enter. Click on the Services tab. Scroll down until you see "Volume Shadow Copy". Unselect it. Click "Enable all" near the bottom of the dialog box. Restart your computer. Good luck.

I realize this is an older thread, but that last post was misinformation. Do NOT follow those instructions to address this BIOS/cacheing issue.

Disabling VSS can cause important programs to stop working properly, and worst-case could cause loss of data (usually by causing the failure of backup programs and/or procedures).

VSS (Volume Shadow Service) has nothing to do with whether or not cacheing is enabled/disabled. They are totally different animals.

VSS is an Microsoft OS file handling SOFTWARE Service, primarily having to do with providing the ability to copy files that are in use by the system...e.g. by backup programs.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc757854%28WS.10%29.aspx

It's availability depends on which OS one is using. For example, Win2000 does not support VSS and programs that rely on that service won't work or will have to try to use an alternative method of trying to access current data (such as file locking)...which may or may not be successful.

BIOS cache memory settings are a HARDWARE function, and vary from computer to computer. Some provide them, some don't. Some provide cacheing of video RAM to system RAM as well. In either case, IF available it is selected via a sub-menu(s) within the BIOS Settings screen, which is entered by the user by invoking specific key(s) during the boot-up screen. If the option is not available within these sub-menus then the user cannot enable/disable it.

edit: changed from wiki source to microsoft source of VSS explanation
