This problem can occur when Quark License Administrator Server 4.5 is installed on the server. In the registry key for Quark License Administrator the image paths are set to "X:\Program files (x86)\quark/quark_license_administrator.”  Volume Shadow Copy Service currently cannot recognize a path with a forward slash “/ “ and the backup fails because of it.
