  1. Thanks for sharing. It looks like they’ve changed the config from “use_vss=true” to “snapshot_type=vss”. I’m not sure what you’d need to change the snapshot type to in order to disable vss. I’m not seeing “use_vss” anywhere in the config, should it be added if it doesn’t exist already?

    I found what was hanging Acronis for my machine; I had used EaseUS to move to an SSD a while back, and I was getting errors in Event Viewer under VSS regarding XML. I used gparted live to rename my gpt partitions, and once I commited the changes and rebooted, VSS started working perfectly.
