To fix some backup problem. (Not sure, it helps or not?)
The backup can't be done.
Error Message: The mounted backup volume is inaccessible. 

Solution 1: Do settings again. Put the username and password one more time to reach network drive.

Solution 2:  Increase shadow storage limit on all drives
The shadow storage size can be checked and manually changed through a command prompt. Open command prompt as administrator rights.

  • To check the current limit set: vssadmin list shadowstorage
  • To change the limit: vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=X: /On=X: /Maxsize=XX%
  • This will resize the limit to XX percentage size for the X: drive.
  • We recommend setting the drive to 30%.
