Hope someone can help.  I have just given this a go and got the following error.

c:\HVBackup>HVBACKUP -a -o f:\VMBackups
Cloudbase HyperVBackup 1.0 beta1
Copyright (C) 2012 Cloudbase Solutions Srl

Backing up all VMs on this server
Initializing VSS

Starting snapshot set for:
Backup Using Child Partition Snapshot\VM1

Error: The requested object does not exist.
   at Alphaleonis.Win32.Vss.VssBackupComponents.GetSnapshotProperties(Guid snapshotId)
   at Cloudbase.Titan.HyperV.Backup.BackupManager.BackupSubset(IDictionary`2 vmNamesMapSubset, String backupOutputPath, String backupOutputFormat) in c:\Devel\HyperVBackup\HyperVBackup\BackupManager.cs:line 166

Vms are not on a CSV.  .NET 3.5.1 is installed. Win 2008 R2 SP1

It returns the correct name of the first VM.

The only thing I am unsure about is this c:\devel\ path in the error as that does not exist and I have installed HVbackup in c:\hvbackup

Is there an additional step I should have taken before running this?  Do I need to register the VSS writer?

Thanks in advance.
