What do I do when I get error "Error 5094: Snapshot provider service encountered an unexpected error preventing the snapshot operation" when trying to back up using Yosemite Server Backup?

  • All versions of Yosemite Server Backup
The Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) service will present an error with EVENT ID 12293. The reason for this error has to do with default allocation sizes and large USB attached drives. Once the USB drive is removed from the data source, the backup is allowed to occur. If problem continues to persist with no removable storage attached, please contact Barracuda Networks Technical Support.
