How can I re-register my StorageCraft VSS Provider?

Recently while troubleshooting a system for a client, I ran across the situation where the StorageCraft VSS Snapshot provider disappeared.

When you ran the vssadmin list providers command, you only got the list below.


I then decided to see if the service was present by running the services console and it was not even listed.  That’s right the StorageCraft Shadow Copy Provider was not present in the list of available services.

The fix was pretty simple. Re-run setup again on the ShadowProtect installer and select the Repair option.  Reboot once it was done and voila… it’s back as you can see below.


Not sure why it disappeared in the first place, but it’s back now and the system is running far more reliably than before.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
