Windows Backup The shared protection point operation failed with error 0x81000101

Windows Server Backup is timing out during shadow copy creation since it is taking more than 10 minutes.

Try increasing the timeout value to 20 minutes and see if that fixes this issue

This involves updating a registry key. Hence please do this carefully.

– Run regedit.exe and navigate to L”HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SPP”

– Create a new Registry value of type DWORD with name “CreateTimeout”

– Change value to 12000000(2*10*60*1000 = 20 mins) in decimal

Re-run backup and check if it succeeds now.

  2. same here did not work for us SBS 2011, we leave it on a weekly schedule and about once every 3 months it actually runs the backup with the error, so who knows.
