Converter fails with error code:0x8000423E

FAILED: Unable to create a VSS snapshot of the source volume

My OS has 4 partitions two partitions of NTFS and two of FAT32. Does the Converter will create snapshot for all partitions.

What is the converter and the guest OS version.

This to my understanding is related to the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) on the Windows Operating System. The VMware Converter uses the Windows VSS for taking snapshot of a volume. Now since the VSS does not support the FAT file system you may have to uncheck the FAT volumes and proceed with only the NTFS and/or convert the FAT volumes to NTFS.

Hope this helps.

Thank You
