System state backup completed with error: 'System State unable to perform backup from a network share'


The error means that one of the System State components refers to an UNC path, and System Writer is unable to perform a snapshot creation over network path. Microsoft System Writer can't make a snapshot over UNC path, so the solution is to change it to the local one.

  1. Locate the path in either Windows registry or in corresponding application settings

  2. Change this UNC path to some local path, for example: C:\Program Files\apps\name
