While useing Ghost to perform a hot image task errors are seen and the image is not created.
Ghost Solution Suite 3.x (GSS)
Createing hot images on windows clients.
Error Number: 756
Message: Could not create a snapshot of the volume
This is seen on systems with multiple partitions. The use of volume snapshot is only supported on a drive with only an active OS partition. In the case of some Win 10 systems there are multiple partitions for recovery and booting that are needed by the os and Ghost will be unable to lock these partitions for the snapshot.
It may be possible to perform a partition only hot image for a system with this error but ultimatly a standard cold image taken while booted to automation should be performed to have the best results.
