Event ID: 9782 Source: MSExchangeIS

Exchange VSS Writer (instance <instance>) has unsuccessfully completed the backup of storage group '<storage group>'. No log files have been truncated for this storage group.
A support forum post suggested the use of Windows Server Backup to perform a backup of Exchange (see TD876854 for details).
In our case, this happened due to the lack of space on the hard disk holding the backups.
As per Microsoft: "This event indicates that your Microsoft® Exchange backup software encountered a problem when you performed a backup operation. To resolve the error, follow these steps:

- Inspect the Application log on the server that reported this event for Warning or Error events associated with the Microsoft Exchange Information Store (MSExchangeIS). The event description will indicate that the Exchange VSS Writer encountered a problem performing a specific task. Examine these events to determine the extent of the problem.
- Contact your backup application vendor if you need help". See MSEX2K3DB for more details.
