While continuing to try to troubleshoot VSS errors on my local 7.6.2 backup server, I found in the Windows logs the the VSS errors are being generated in reference to the local file device drives. Each local file device is a directory on a dedicated volume (s:\LocalDiskFile01, t:\LocalDiskFile02). Networker has placed nsr.dir files in these folders that reads
"# Don't backup ssid files null: volume skip: *"
However, the OS still wants to volumesnap the volume. Does the null: volume need to be at the root of the volume rather than in the directory?
