On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Vista with Service Pack 1, you try to perform a system backup operation. However, the backup process fails immediately after it starts, and you receive the following error message:

Catastrophic failure (0x8000FFFF)

The backup process fails when the shadow copy creation is in progress. If you change the backup configuration, the same issue occurs.
