I don't see a way to set the Volume Shadow Copy to automatic. I right clicked on it and clicked properties and everything is greyed out and there is no "set to automatic" button anyway.
There is no maintenance software installed on the machine.
Please let me know about the service and what I should do.
P.S.1 I just tried opening services using "run as admin" and it just ran it as normal. It did not ask for my admin pw.
P.S.2 I already had MWB on the machine but it was out of date and wouldn't update. I checked their site and they recommended uninstall/install so I downloaded an uninstall program for it but after reboot. It doesn't look like it uninstalled. Just tried running the uninstaller "as admin" and it did the same thing as above - didn't ask for admin pw and now after rebooting, I see it did not uninstall MWB.
<update> Logged into admin user and was able to remove MWB. Now installing new version.
<update 2> Being actually logged into admin account (as opposed to trying to "run as admin") allowed me to get into services and turn Volume Shadow Copy to automatic and to restart it. I'm rebooting now to see if it stays that way. THEN I will install MWB.
