    "The VSS service is shutting down due to idle timeout" - event 8224 on Windows 10.

    Original Title: System volume information keeps increasing

     

    This folder keeps increasing and gobbling up my C drive. I have System Restore set on the C drive alone with a maximum of 12 Gb, but it ignores this and sets itself to 100%. I have many files {e8eec.........} in this folder and a new one appears often (15+ in the last 90 min). Each time a new file appears, it coincides with "The VSS service is shutting down due to idle timeout" - event 8224 in Event Viewer. Any ideas how to stop it?.

    Hi Tom,

     

    Thanks for replying and sorry for delayed response.

     

    SFC scan and DISM scan will detect if any of the system files are missing or corrupted and will replace the same to enhance and resolve the system issues on the PC.

     

    Run SFC scan and DISM scan on the PC by following the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.

     

    SFC scan is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash.

     

    Windows corruption errors may prevent Windows updates and service packs from installing. For example, an update might not install if a system file is damaged. The DISM scan or System Update Readiness tool may help you to fix some Windows corruption errors. 

     

    Step 1: Open an Administrator command prompt window by

     

    1. Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select Command Prompt (Admin) option.
    2. Click on Yes and continue. Provide administrator password if prompted.
    3. Check if it says Administrator: Command Prompt at the top of the command prompt window.

     

    Step 2: Type the following commands in the CMD Prompt:

     

                Dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth

                Dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

                sfc /scannow

     

    Step 3: Close the command window and check if the issue is resolved.
