Cannot create a quiesced snapshot because the create snapshot operation exceeded the time limit for holding off I/O in the frozen virtual machine.

I ran into a problem with one virtual machine, when creating a snapshot for backup (Veeam and/or VMware datarecovery) :

After some troubleshooting i found that stopping the following services did the job :

Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider” and “Volume Shadow Copy”

The specific server is an webserver so these VSS services are not that important for me. 🙂
